Employee Well-being: Maximize Your Mental Health This May


May is Mental Health Awareness Month and it’s critical to take action on steps to improve the mental health of those in the sports and events industry. Following a trend that began at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, rates of burnout, anxiety, and depression are at record rates with 1 in 5 adults living with a mental health diagnosis in the United States (Center for Disease Control). Premier Sport Psychology, one of WISE Twin Cities’ corporate members, is dedicated to improving mental health education for athletes, coaches, administrators, employees, and those outside of the sport community.

While reactive resources will always play a critical role in the mental health care ecosystem, getting out in front of it with proactive care is essential to improving mental health for generations to come. Proactive mental health care isn’t just for youth and young adults. All humans can benefit from proactive mental health care…and the workplace is no exception.

Now more than ever, it’s important to be proactive about mental health and wellness in the workplace. Harnessing the power of evidence-based research, Premier Sport Psychology provides an assessment that equips individuals with a comprehensive understanding of their unique mental health and wellness profile.

The Premier Mindset Staff Assessment encompasses 5 primary areas that are foundational in your mental health and performance within the sport work environment. The research behind this assessment shows that by identifying your growth areas and focusing on increasing in these areas, you can improve your mental health and performance at work.

The 5 key areas integral to employee wellness and performance in the sport industry include:

  1. Performance Mindset - balancing day-to-day responsibilities with long-term career plans and career goals
  2. Mindful Intention - task delegation, effective routines, setting boundaries, and goal setting
  3. Recovery - work/life balance, boundaries, finding opportunities to rest/recover
  4. Relational Intelligence - trusting colleagues, effectively communicating with team members, openness to new ideas and perspectives
  5. Team Culture - how much an employee feels supported and valued in the workplace

Premier Sport Psychology is offering this assessment free to the WISE Twin Cities community. This assessment takes 10-15 minutes to complete. Once completed, you will receive your scores and immediate valuable feedback on how to improve in the 5 key areas.
