Psychiatric and neuropsychological issues in sport medicine.

Author information

Division of Neuropsychology, Department of Psychiatric Medicine, University of Virginia School of Medicine, Box 800203, Charlottesville, VA 22908, USA.


This article reviews what is known about training room psychiatric/psychological issues and how to recognize them, and provides an initial framework for how to manage them. There is some focus on psychiatric issues involved in collegiate sports medicine environments, because the majority of research on this topic has been done with this population, but it is believed that this information generalizes to other athletic settings. Greater awareness of these problems, empirical research, and education about mental health issues in the sports medicine community is clearly needed.
