Turf Club- Study on Mental Health

Project Details


This project aimed to investigate the mental health and help-seeking attitudes of professional jockeys in Ireland. The project highlights the challenging nature of a career as a jockey which may be linked to adverse mental health outcomes such as a prevalence of common mental disorders. Findings also indicated a number of barriers to help-seeking which may promote a reluctance to seek help, with self-stigma and mental health literacy appearing important constructs to address in future research and psychoeducational programmes.
