Reconnect – change the mental health mindset
CONNECTED is our new initiative for Mental Health and wellness in partnership with Shoot for a Cure and Canadian/American Spinal Research Organization. Our goal is to ensure that individuals in need are given access to the proper care for their unique mental health and wellness needs.
“One in four people in the world will be affected by mental or neurological disorders at some point in their lives.”
We know this issue is crucial to address and we need to do more. We know that community and social connection is among the best methods for helping individuals who suffer from mental illness and other psychological difficulties in their lives.
Our Safe4Sports prevention program is comprised of seminars that will incorporate Mental Health Training in Sports. We currently prepare athletes physically and now must elevate our program to include Mental Training. One of the hurdles an athlete (young or mature) can experience is the ability to deal with the pressure in today’s society to be the best. Many individuals have expressed post injury stress and anxiety. Our findings have shown that these neurological issues can lead to severe depression, addiction and in many cases, suicide.
