Developing Mentally
Healthier Communities through Sport


Thank you for your involvement in amateur sport, and for your commitment to building mentally healthy communities through sport.

Canadian Mental Health Association, Ontario and the Ministry of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries have partnered to develop a series of resources aimed at developing a mentally healthier sports community. Our goal is to provide engaging and evidence-informed resources that enhance the mental wellness of athletes and sports participants.

Just like we all have physical health, we all have mental health. We can work as a team to build a community where we discuss mental health openly, help others and reach out for support.

This site helps you understand more about mental wellness and mental health.

Together we can:

  • Raise awareness of the mental wellness needs of amateur athletes and sports participants
  • Support each other by developing the skills needed to recognize and respond to mental health needs
  • Create a safer sports culture by promoting positive mental health and the importance of reaching out
