As part of the NCAA’s Summit on Diverse Student-Athlete Mental Health and Well-Being, experts developed a consensus statement to identify concepts that may facilitate NCAA efforts to assist member institutions in addressing the mental health needs of student-athletes of colour. The authors offered a scoping review regarding help-seeking, treatment preferences, response to discrimination, patient-clinician relationships, as well as norms and stigma. They also provide a box listing proposed concepts that may be leveraged by NCAA member institutions to support the mental health needs of racial minority student-athletes.
