Introducing “More than a Game", a service that specializes in providing social-emotional support to student-athletes, coaches, and stakeholders. At Peter James Behavioral Health, we understand that the demands and pressures of being a student-athlete can be overwhelming and can take a toll on an individual's mental and emotional health.
Our mission is to provide tailored mental health support and resources to help student-athletes thrive both on and off their playing fields. We offer individual and team support services, as well as workshops and training sessions on topics such as stress management, resilience building, and many more.
In addition, we work closely with coaches and other support staff to promote positive team dynamics and communication. We provide education and resources on issues such as substance abuse, eating disorders, and other mental health concerns that can affect athletes.
With More than a Game, we also understand the importance of providing support to coaches and stakeholders who play a critical role in the success of student-athletes. We offer tailored training and resources to help coaches effectively support their athletes' social and emotional needs and to promote positive team culture and communication.
We believe that every student-athlete deserves access to the resources and support they need to succeed both on and off the field. At Peter James Behavioral Health, we are committed to helping student-athletes thrive and achieve their full potential by providing tailored social-emotional support and resources to athletes, coaches, and stakeholders.
Coaches will be trained in Mental Health First Aide that is customized to student-athletes. Coaches will receive certification in Mental Health First Aide with an athletic-specific endorsement.
At the beginning of the season, a parent presentation directed to the social-emotional needs of the student-athlete will be given. The parent presentation will focus on their role in supporting their student-athlete. The presentation will include their impact on the student athletes’ social-emotional needs with interactions with other stakeholders like referees, coaches, and events within the gameday atmosphere. Parent presentations can also be customized to your school’s needs.
Team presentations will always include the need for social-emotional wellness and the difference between a struggle and a hurdle. The athlete will be given tools and skills to use in challenging times for themselves and their teammates. With the collaboration of team coaches, the presentations can be customized for specific needs within teams. Team presentations do not need to be limited to the pre-season.
Social-Emotional Support Advisor (Mindset Coach)
The athletic program will have direct contact with a Mindset Coach. The contact will be open to athletes, coaches, and parents. The Mindset Coach will be a bridge to create a plan to assist when social-emotional issues arise in a season for a team member or the whole team. The Mindset Coach will work hand in hand under the direction of the Head Coaches and the Athletic Department.
Building Champions takes a village. All stakeholders are involved in developing the Mental Health of your student Athlete. "More Than a Game" is a tool chest of ways to help, and we partner with you through out the season.
