International Testing Agency Webinar

ITA’s announcement :

ITA’ s fourth webinar of 2022 focuses on doping and mental health.

The importance of mental health in sport has been brought to the public attention over the last few months with several high-profile athletes speaking out. But what is the relationship between mental health and doping? How can poor mental health lead to doping and equally, how does doping effect mental health? What strategies can an athlete use to support and improve their mental health? And most importantly, what can coaches, athlete support personnel and the entire sport system do to support the athletes’ well-being to prevent doping?

Join us as we delve into this topic with Thais Cevada, PhD from the Brazilian NADO Education Team, who will share her expertise and knowledge and Geneviève Jeanson, former professional cyclist and Canadian Olympian, who will share her story of how a difficult personal situation can lead to doping. Importantly, both panellists will offer solutions for us all to contribute to improving the mental health of athletes, and thus protecting them against doping.

As always, we are pleased to deliver these webinars in English with simultaneous translation to four additional languages – Arabic (العربي), Spanish (español), French (français) and Russian (русский).
