dc.description.abstract Themini-review by Uphill et al. highlights the prominence of psychological issues in sport through various media. The review also highlights gaps in the research in conceptions in mental health, interventions needed, and collaborative work that remains outstanding. The review used the Keyes (2002) model as a framework in which athlete well-being and mental health can be readily understood. Although the incidence of mental health difficulties are similar in athletes to the general population the article also draws reference to the existing stigma of mental health and the under-recognition of mental illness in sporting populations. This may be as a result of not wishing to be seen as showing weakness in a culture that perceives athletes as being mentally “tough.” This article focuses on athletes; however, it is important to look beyond athletes as we should be at least as concerned with coaches’ well-being as athletes. en_US
