Mental Health Resource. Mental health is a critical aspect of student-athlete wellness. Protecting and promoting student-athlete mental health requires the involvement of stakeholders from inside and outside of athletics.

Mind, Body and Sport is an interactive resource for athletics administrators from the perspectives of student-athletes, coaches and mental health experts. This new resource is available as an e-publication, on the NCAA Sport Science Institute website and as a printed book that was mailed to campus athletics departments and counseling centers.
