Abstract
This study investigates how eSport players perceive the availability of organisational support focused on their mental and physical health. The research team then looks into eSports players' coping skills and strategies they adopt in these areas during their professional career. The input of eSports stakeholders was used to construct a narrative of best practice and to discuss challenges in creating a support system. Evidence was collected from a diverse sample, including 34 active players and 20 members from other stakeholder organisations including game publishers, national associations, sponsors, event organisers, federations, and coaches.
