ON THE COVER — Winning At All Costs? — Page 18 – Our special Health & Wellness Editorial kicks off with a feature article for The Parenting Biz section. For young athletes, coaches are often seen as mentors and role models. This leadership comes with a unique responsibility: a platform to influence more than just the physical development of players. With the rise in mental health challenges among youth, those coaches who take time to learn about mental health, provide space for open communication, and foster a positive environment for growth, can significantly contribute to the mental wellness of players. Find out what local businesses and sports organizations are doing to include mental well-being in their programs. Parents and coaches will also receive valuable advice from Dr. Tracy Vaillancourt, Tier 1 Canada Research Chair in School-Based Mental Health and Violence Prevention at the University of Ottawa.
