Abstract
Objective. To review the current literature regarding the impact of psychosocial interventions for mental health issues in collegiate athletes. Methods. Literature was gathered through PubMed and Google Scholar to identify articles about the impact of psychosocial interventions on the overall well-being of collegiate athletes. The interventions included were mindfulness-based interventions and cognitive behavioral therapy. Results. All articles in this review support using mindfulness-based interventions and cognitive behavioral therapy as treatments for mental health issues in athletes. In addition to improved mental health among the athletic population, other aspects of the athlete were improved, including pain tolerance, mental toughness, and ability to cope with adversities. Conclusion. Psychosocial interventions like mindfulness-based interventions and cognitive behavioral therapies provide many benefits that support the overall well-being of collegiate athletes.
