Bringing Talk Today to College Campuses
About the Session:
Talk Today is one of the most comprehensive mental health programs for amateur sports in Canada. Recognizing that student-athletes have academic pressures added to competing in their chosen sport, Sault College and CMHA worked to become the first post – secondary campus to adopt Talk Today. We trained the entire Athletics Program in safeTALK – Every Athlete (148), staff and Coach(29). And 3 staff were trained in ASIST. We also did a Talk Today Awareness Event with Men’s/Women’s Basketball Team. Find out how we did it.
