Transitioning out of sport after standing on an Olympic or Paralympic podium, or after provincial/territorial competition, can be difficult. Tips to support athlete mental health through this transition include:

  1. Detrain your body and mind to adjust to the different but challenging demands of life after sport.
  2. Find purpose in the day to day by exploring other interests and developing new daily routines.
  3. Recognize the skills you learned through sport and apply them in other areas of your life.
