The National Alliance for Youth Sports is aware that mental health challenges in sports are an extremely sensitive topic for coaches and parents of young athletes, regardless of the age or gender of the players. Here are some startling statistics you should be aware of as a coach of youth sports:
Because this is such an important subject, we have created an optional coaching children with mental health challenges training course for NAYS Coaches to supplement the information they received during their training.
This new program is completely free to any NAYS Coach and can be added to your existing membership.
We also recommend you check out the autism-society.org, parentcenterhub.org, nimh.nih.gov and nami.org websites for further information regarding mental health challenges in youth sports.
