Anxiety in Athletes: a resource for athletes, their families, supporters, & team staff

Anxiety in Athletes provides information, resources, and materials about anxiety and OCD as they relate to sports and athletics.

It offers tools for team staff (coaches, managers, trainers, etc.) who may work with athletes with anxiety and/or OCD.

Athletes and their families can also find tools and information to help them navigate their lives with anxiety/OCD, advocate for themselves, and join the effort to reduce the stigma of mental health in athletics.
