This quiz will test your understanding of mental health within society but also within the sporting environment.
Introduction to Mental Health
This course is designed to support coaches who regularly interact with players, giving the coach a 'mental health toolkit' to support their players.
Your Coaching Environment
In this lesson, we will explore the warning signs to look out for when working with your players and hear experiences from an academy manager working in elite football.
Tools to Support you as a Coach
In this lesson, we will look at some of the tools that you can utilise to support your players.
Cognitive Behavioural Techniques (CBT) are a great tool for changing a negative thought into a positive one and we will show examples of how this can be utilised but also how CBT can be used to manage stress in your players.
Building a Support Network
In this lesson, we will explore a systematic process as a tool to use on yourself as the coach but also with your players.
This process has been used within the National Health System in the UK to support individuals with mental health issues. Research has shown that this can be an effective tool to help both coaches and players within sport.
In this lesson, we will explore what we have covered within the course and identify the key information from each lesson. As part of completing this course, you can download the supporting PDF that has more helpful tips and information plus direction for anyone that needs further support outside of the football club.
