Mental Health in Mountain Sports Seminars
During 2022 and 2023, I began hosting mental health seminars with topics relating specifically to mountain sports and culture. Whether you are a beginner, a professional athlete, or an enthusiastic recreationalist, these seminars discuss important topics that come up frequently for individuals in mountain towns.
Ideas for these seminars came through personal experience, and engaging with the community, finding out what people want help with and want to learn about. It is evident there is a need for discussion on these topics, and to do so in a way that is easily accessible and affordable is my goal with these presentations.
The purpose of these presentations is to educate and enhance awareness about mental health issues specific to mountain sports and reduce stigma around mental illness. I am in the process of developing future seminars. However, if you are part of an organization or group of individuals that are wanting to host one of these seminars, you can do so by contacting me directly. I am able to do either part 1 or part 2 of the series either in person in the Sea to Sky or virtually, with an option to integrate in new topics by request.
