This Special Issue will be focused on mental health in sport. Specifically, we are seeking submissions that characterize the mental illness risk mitigation, prevalence of mental illness, improvements to mental wellness, and post-injury mental health among the athlete and physically active populations. Submissions are welcome from sports medicine and counseling professionals, including athletic training, sports medicine and orthopedic physicians, physical therapy and other rehabilitation scientists, mental health counselors, psychologists, psychiatrists, as well as any others focused on the mental health and wellness of athletes. The Special Issue will highlight the various mental wellness challenges faced by today’s athletes but also explore prevention and intervention mechanisms.
Potential topics include but are not limited to mental health and wellness prevalence, mental health education and professional development, mindfulness and psychological flexibility training, coping and resilience, neurodiversity and concomitant mental health concerns, sleep difficulties and sleep training, cognitive behavioral therapy, preparedness and performance, and pharmacological interventions with sport, exercise, and competition.
