Mental Health Summits and Task Forces

The NCAA Sport Science Institute is committed to serving and educating student-athletes, athletics departments and member schools. To help accomplish this goal, we collaborate with prominent medical and sports medicine organizations, leading experts in the field, and member schools to host sport- and topic-specific summits and task forces each year. These events give rise to best practices, recommendations, research agendas and educational efforts that support and promote the health and safety of college athletes.
