Athlete Panel on Mental Health Webinar – CSIO & CMHA

May 8 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Cost:  Free

Audience: This session is open to all! Athletes, coaches, IST, staff, parents.

Please join us during the CMHA’s Mental Health Awareness Week for a virtual athlete panel facilitated by Dr. Leann Lapp, C.Psych.  Aligned with this year’s theme of “A call to be kind – #CompassionConnects,” we will hear from three Canadian high performance athletes as they share their experiences and reflections on mental health, compassion, resilience, identity, and sport.

Panelists include: Sasha Gollish (Athletics), Akash Grewal (Volleyball), and Ella Hodgson-Pageau (Canoe)

This panel will offer insight about:

  • what it’s like to perform at high levels while also managing mental health concerns
  • how athletes can feel more empowered to ask for what they need and feel less alone when they have a mental health concern
  • how some athletes keep playing, pause playing, and/or return to playing with a mental health concern
  • how coaches, staff, IST, and teammates all have important roles to play in supporting our high-performance athletes’ mental health
