The Can Bou Play Foundation (a high impact mentor and education organization that uses sport at its core) and Mindology Trinidad (a sport psychology firm) have teamed up to launch the Sport In Mind – Mental Health Program which ushers in a new era on how mental health is approached in Trinidad and Tobago and how sport can operate as a great tool to tackle various mental challenges (depression, stress, anxiety, etc) and the stigma attached to the mental health discussion.
Sport In Mind runs weekly at the Ultimate Indoor Facility (Aranguez), to provide a safe and welcoming space for adolescents to participate in a multitude of sports (primarily football) with highly qualified technical coaches; provided by the Can Bou Play Foundation, and engage in one to one and group discussions, workshops and idea sharing spaces with sport psychologist Olton as a blended curricullum.
Every three days in Trinidad, someone commits suicide (according to TT Association of Psychologists) and increasing numbers of young people (1 in 5 according to APA stats) are suffering with mental ill health. We believe that these projects can be the game changing catalyst for how these issues are approached and treated.
