About the Webinar


The sports ecosystem is a catalytic testing ground for e-mental health strategies that need to deliver under pressure. Sport has always been perceived as healthy, but like all other contexts it often fails to take care of people’s mental health. In fact, 20.1% of all athletes come out of sport with mental health issues, globally. 


As sport grapples with this issue, attention has turned to prevention and the development of successful  strategies around resilience building and mental conditioning. To implement these strategies effectively in sports demands a model of care that must deliver with speed, agility and sell to millennials and future generations. The sports ecosystem is uniquely placed to meet this need with its ability to generate effective engagement on a global scale. The sports context also enables us to study our most fragile and vulnerable populations in their key developmental years during short-phased careers, to learn what works in the struggle against mental ill-health. 


With the right approach, the end user of sport e-mental health can serve as both a crucial source of inspiration and eMental Health’s future super user. 



This webinar will explore the following questions:


  • What key opportunities does the sports ecosystem provide us with? 
  • In what ways does sport provide us with a global focus group for “accidental innovation”?
  • What is transitional resilience in sport & why should we all be thinking about it? 
  • How can we leverage effective engagement strategies in sport to get people excited about eMental Health?
  • What is the right language to use in eMental Health to make it appealing for athletes and other groups to engage with their “mental muscle”?
  • What have we learnt about global inclusion, accessibility and diversity in sport that could help us to ‘engage the disengaged’ and reach all populations? 
  • How can these learnings be fed through into the main eMental Health ecosystem?
