BelievePerform are proud to announce an impactful partnership with SuperSport Schools to provide mental health support to coaches, athletes and parents using expert-led visual learning resources.
The collaboration will merge SuperSport Schools’ extensive school and youth database, with BelievePerform’s world renowned platform which is focused on keeping a healthy balance between performance and mental health.
Duncan Woods, the BelievePerform lead in South Africa commented:
“Our purpose is to inspire the worlds of sport and education to experience the full power of mental fitness through visual led learning. We are extremely excited to become the Mental Health Partner to SuperSport Schools and look forward to sharing our expertise with their community of schools.”
This alliance provides the opportunity to give coaches, athletes and parents applied and practical tools to help build positive mental health habits. As part of this partnership; SuperSport Schools will have access to a suite of mental health resources to promote awareness and encourage best practice among their subscribers. In addition, all new schools in the SuperSport Schools network will receive a starter pack of resources to get them started on the road to furthering their proficiency in this area. This will be supported by a year-round curriculum, including expert-hosted webinars, encouraging the use of mental health and -skills building.
The belief is that with the right education, knowledge and support, people can be helped to improve their performance within their own chosen sport, and in doing so, support sports people to build positive mental health habits.
The partnership will be looking to improve the access to mental health resources available in schools and helping more athletes, parents and coaches to stay mentally healthy, in and out of sport.
Speaking on the partnership, SuperSport Schools General Manager, Gerhard Steyn said:
