In this session, mental health in performance sport was explored from an interdisciplinary perspective. Research has typically focussed on athlete perspectives; however, in this interactive research project, Dr Andy Kirkland, Dr Hayley McEwan and Dr Paul Gorczynski sought delegates perspectives- as scientists, coaches and support staff- surrounding mental health and wellbeing. A World Café approach was used to draw upon and capture diverse experiences and expertise relating to mental health in the working environment.
