Through original, empirical research, designed to explore the impact of critical life events on sport performers’ mental health, well-being, and ability to function and perform, the Human Thriving Project led by Professor David Shearer, Professor Brendan Cropley, Dr Ross Hall, and Kristin McGinty-Minister (Sport Psychology theme) aims is to develop appropriate support mechanisms for elite athletes and coaches that account for the unique demands they face and assist their quest to thrive through difficult moments. 

The Human Thriving Project is being supported by the Welsh Institute of Performance Sciences and Sport Wales who see value in establishing evidence-informed approaches to helping performers at all levels manage the demands they face by refocusing the spotlight onto mental health, well-being, and thriving.
