dc.description.abstractMental health and well-being is a topic of increasing interest, but within the field of sports coaching empirical data is rare. The present study aimed to provide insight into the levels of well-being and the prevalence of psychological issues among sports coaches. In an online survey of 64 coaches, we explored symptoms of a number of well-being factors including depression, anxiety, negative affect and stress. No significant differences were found between genders, sport type or the level of sport. However, results indicated that 25% of the coaches were low in wellbeing, with 7% totalling negative scores and 45% only mid-low in levels of wellbeing. Furthermore, results indicated a significant number of coaches with high levels of anxiety, life and job stress, work demands and work withdrawal difficulties. This study suggests important implications for the field of sports coaching and for coaches both personally and professionally. It is recommended that further exploration into well-being on a larger scale is warranted.en_US
