If you have a child in minor sports, chances are good that he or she is being, or has been, coached by a construction professional. Tradespeople (and first responders) seem to make up a disproportionate amount of sport coaches.
Building their players’ mental health is becoming a key part of coaching. To help, the Coaching Association of Canada has set up a Mental Health and Sport Resource Hub online – with resources to help coaches.
It includes articles, videos, courses, and papers on mental health and athletes. It’s free and definitely helpful.
Always great to have another tool in the mental health toolbox!
Each week, ICBA’s Jordan Bateman reflects on what we’ve learned as we participate in ICBA’s Workplace Wellness Program. ICBA’s Workplace Wellness Program is helping more than 100 companies and more than 10,000 construction professionals better understand mental health. This program is free for all ICBA members – check out icba.ca/wellness for details.
