They are also told to never show weakness, whether it be physical or mental. That fear of showing weakness could be the driver behind somany mental health issues in both professional and amateur sport.This one day conference is designed to get the sports industry talking in greater detail about the importance of mental health and of building the mental resilience that professional athletes require in order to excel in their careers and beyond.
