Let’s Talk: Student-Athlete Mental Health Office Hours

What is it?
The Let’s Talk: Student-Athlete Mental Health Office Hours program provides informal consultation with Shelby Bitter, LPCC-S in GY102 every Wednesday from 12-2pm. The goal is to provide basic information on mental skills training, the process, how it can be beneficial for individual athletes or whole teams, and the difference between mental skills training and mental health counseling. Basic mental skills training information can be discussed for topics such as goal setting, attention and concentration, emotion-management, self-talk, imagery, relaxation, confidence, identity, athletic transitions, etc.

Who is it for?
Those who may benefit from this program include:
• Student-athletes who want more information on mental skills training and/or mental health counseling but are unsure where to begin
• Student-athletes looking for basic mental skills drills and when/how they can be implemented into practices
• Student-athletes who may have concerns about a teammate/friend and wish to seek advice on how to support them
• Coaches and other athletic personnel interested in mental skills consultation and possible continued consistent work with their teams
