Mental Health in Sports and in Life

Submitted on Wednesday, 01/29/2020 - 1:00 am

Hull Services has partnered with I Got Mind to help promote the importance of mental health in the sporting world. The goal of Mental Health in Sports at Hull Services is to educate and promote best practices to attain mental health wellness in the sporting communities.

 

Hull Services and partner, I Got Mind have been on tour since 2018 talking to people about mental health. The I Got Mind initiative has been very successful in communities across Western Canada, were we have had over 5000 people attend our events.

During COVID-19 we have created curriculum and presentations that help with the issues we are all facing and the importance of everyone to work on their mental wellness.

The team of I Got Mind and Hull Services gives a very unique experience when talking about Mental health. It is a combination of practical life experience along with brain science and clinical research, this allows all attendees to understand what might be going on within themselves, ideas of how to overcome, and become mentally well.

During this unprecedented time, stress and anxiety are affecting millions of people on the planet. This is, and has had, a significant impact in all areas of life. We are offering support to any organization who feels their team/community could use the support and education of how to deal with the new world.

We do this by offering team webinars where we share what we have learned both practically and clinically. These sessions are very informative, and interactive. The goal is to create understanding and share best practices in self care.

About I Got Mind

Over the years of being heavily involved in sports, founder Bob Wilkie realized that the athletes he was coaching were heading down the same path he had traveled. Unmet expectations, striving for perfection, pressure from coaches and peers all which lead to anxiety, depression and substance abuse. I Got Mind is continuously growing, and a team of passionate former athletes and mental health experts are all working together to support and educate as many people involved in the sport as possible.
