For many athletes they invest most of their sporting career working on developing and improving their physical, technical, tactical and psychological skills. They spend hours in the gym and on the training pitch becoming more skilled, faster, stronger and better performers. One area which is often neglected within the world of sport is the mental health of athletes. Elite sport can be a harsh environment which brings with it a number of stressors and pressures which can negatively influence an athletes wellbeing. From retirement to overtraining, injury to burnout there are numerous factors which can increase an athletes vulnerability to mental health problems.
