Mental health is an important topic to address within secondary school and collegiate athlete populations, particularly because approximately 75% of mental health disorders begin prior to age 24. Given the integral role of athletic trainers in health care, they are often the first point of contact for athletes experiencing mental health difficulties. Although athletic trainers respond to these emotional experiences, many do not feel equipped to provide psychological assistance. Many also lack direct access to mental health providers trained to work with athletes who can help address these concerns. Therefore, athletic trainers would benefit from learning how to identify and refer athletes experiencing mental health difficulties to qualified mental health providers. The role of the athletic trainer in management of mental health difficulties will also be discussed.
