After attending a St Luke’s Careers Day and talking to guest speaker Jon Pitts, I was offered a job at Motive8 Health and Fitness. Working in the schools department, I carried out research with staff at St Luke’s on physical activity levels during PE lessons in primary schools. Then I progressed to department manager, with the aim to improve the quality of sport and health provision offered in schools. After a year at Motive8, I moved to Wales and became coordinator of the ‘5 for life’ project at Newport Local Health Board. Under the Going for Gold scheme, the project targets children and families through school, community learning and festivals to promote healthy living. This job offers a range of experiences from working on partnership with public health agencies, organising community events as well as delivering healthy workshops to children in schools.

  • Understand the common psychological responses to injuries as well as the need for monitoring for problematic responses that can be triggered by injury.
  • Screen for underlying mental health issues, such as depression, anxiety, eating disorders, substance use and gambling issues during the pre-participation physical as well as during the season.
  • Look for problematic psychological responses (those that do not resolve, worsen over time, or where the severity of symptoms seem excessive) in athletes during all aspects of injury (immediately after injury, post-injury, rehabilitation, return to play progression).
  • Understand the unique challenges of the psychological response to concussive injury given the individualized and often unclear timeline for recovery, the overlap of common post-concussive symptoms with mental health symptoms, and the increasing concern for the possibility of complications such as neurodegenerative disease and persistent post-concussive symptoms.
  • Understand the resources available and the importance of referral to a team physician and mental health care provider, using a team approach and “demystifying” the stigma often attached to seeking help for mental health issues.
  • Provide an environment of listening and empathy for athletes that may be experiencing mental health issues and provide referrals in a supportive manner.
  • Communicate with coaches regarding any problematic responses to injury that may occur and provide suggestions to keep injured athletes involved in team functions and practice/play activities.
  • Provide early referral to mental health providers for evaluation and management, and include mental health providers in management of injured athletes. Develop multidisciplinary teams that include athletic trainers, team physicians, psychologists and psychiatrists to collaborate and address mental health issues in athletes.
