Lausanne (RWH) The International Testing Agency ITA invites to it‘s April webinar regarding Doping and Mental Health.
Date and Time: Tuesday, April 26, 15-16 CET
What is the relationship between mental health and doping? How can poor mental health lead to doping and how does doping effect mental health? What strategies can an athlete use to support and improve their mental health? And most importantly, what can coaches, athlete support personnel and the entire sport system do to support the athletes’ wellbeing to prevent doping?
The ITA discusses this topic with Thais Cevada, PhD, Brazilian Doping Control Authority (ABCD), who will share her expertise and knowledge and Genevieve Jeanson, former professional cyclist and Canadian Olympian, who will share her story of how a difficult personal situation can lead to doping. Importantly, both panellists will offer solutions to contribute to improving the mental health of athletes, and thus protecting them against doping.
These webinars are delivered in English with simultaneous translation to four additional languages – Arabic (العربي), Spanish (español), French (français) and Russian (русский).
