Athletic trainers (AT) are often exposed to emotionally distressed athletes. While prohibited from providing direct mental health services, AT are ethically mandated to respect, advocate for, and provide competent care specific to the current and long-term health and wellness of all patients. This presentation explores links between AT wellness and their attitudes toward mental illness and details implications for building effective partnerships between the counseling and AT disciplines.
