Abstract

Coaches can play an instrumental role throughout a person’s life. Acting as a mentor for learning new skills, teaching others how to better themselves, or providing leadership in a variety of diverse settings. Research on coaching psychology and coaching effectiveness describes coaching responsibilities as supporting growth in their professional and personal lives through result-based guidance, specifically focusing on progressing athlete’s performance and wellbeing (Grant, 2006; Jowett, 2017). Therefore, these coaches can have strong and lasting effects on those they are providing mentorship towards. While there are many different types of coaches the purpose of this research paper is to examine the research related to collegiate athletic coaches. Collegiate athletes’ experiences with mental health problems in the United States have suggested that a main contributor to the problem is their coaches’ methods and behaviors used toward them and the team (Howell 2021).
