Mental Health & Sport: The Challenge of Balancing Risk With Reward

SPORTING STARS TO TURN THE SPOTLIGHT ON MENTAL HEALTH AS QF’S GLOBAL HEALTH INITIATIVE WISH HOSTS VIRTUAL PANEL

Dame Kelly Holmes, Robbie Fowler, and Wasim Akram among speakers at online event

Stars who shone on the athletics track, the football field, and the cricket pitch will next week join an expert on sports psychology to discuss the impact that sport can have on mental health, in an online event hosted by the World Innovation Summit for Health, Qatar Foundation’s global health initiative.

Mental Health & Sport: The Challenge of Balancing Risk With Reward will feature a panel discussion where participants will share first-hand experiences of the pressures that elite-level sport creates, and the toll it can take amid the trophies, medals, and glory. It comes as the importance of maintaining mental wellbeing is thrown into even sharper focus by the strain that COVID-19 has placed on individuals and societies worldwide.
