Temiskaming Thunder Resource Center

Athlete Mental Health

At Temiskaming Thunder, we recognize that mental health plays a crucial role in the overall well-being and performance of our athletes. As an organization committed to fostering a supportive and nurturing environment, we prioritize the mental health and emotional resilience of our players. We understand that the pressures and challenges of competitive sports can take a toll on athletes' mental state, and we actively encourage open conversations about mental health to break down the stigma surrounding it. We aim to empower our athletes to prioritize their mental wellness. By recognizing that mental health is as important as physical fitness, we strive to create a culture where our athletes can thrive both on and off the field, ensuring their long-term success and happiness in all aspects of life

On the Temiskaming Thunder website, we have compiled a list of links and references to various internet resources that can serve as valuable tools for athletes, coaches, parents, administrators, and organizations seeking information or support related to sport and mental health. It's important to note that the Temiskaming Thunder organization does not endorse or validate the viewpoints expressed on these external sites, and we cannot guarantee the accuracy of the information they provide. However, we strive to provide a comprehensive collection of resources to cater to the diverse needs of our community.
