POSF Mental Health Program
Mental health is not often talked about in sports but it’s importance has never been higher. In general, rates of teen depression and suicide have skyrocketed since 2011. While sports kept young athletes busy, focused, and productive, the pandemic caused lockdowns that enhanced deterioration of mental health. Having been exposed to this disturbing trend and even observing it in action in athletes, the Pilipinas Obstacle Sports Federation decided to invest in mental health.
The Pilipinas Obstacle Sports Federation partnered with Adrenaline Solutions to design, develop, and implement a Mental Health Program for its national athletes and coaches.
Adrenaline Solutions gathered its team of sports and mental health experts to design and develop the program. It produced a 15-hour program spread over a month. The team recruited subject matter experts from Austria, United Kingdom, Canada and the Philippines as part of the roster of lecturers and sharers. AS handled marketing, pre-program polling, program facilitation, and program certification too.
By November 13, 24 coaches and athletes of the Pilipinas Obstacle Sports Federation gained better understanding about mental health issues. An online assessment was conducted to certify that the participants have clearly understood the key insights and takeaways of the course. Last November 23, the online program officially ended with the president of the federation, Atty. Alberto C. Agra, present as the main speaker and witness to the virtual distribution of certificates.
