Referees are the subject of constant physiological and psychological pressures when officiating (Wolfson & Neave 2007).

The increased awareness of mental health issues in society has prompted athletes of all levels to begin talking about their own mental health experiences. However, we don’t hear as much from sporting officials.

In each sport, it’s the referees or umpires who are regularly criticised and abused for their decision-making. So, how is their mental health?

Officials of the sports we love have one of the most important jobs in the sporting world. It’s a horrible cliché, but without officials these competitive sports would not take place. Referees are the subject of constant physiological and psychological pressures when officiating (Wolfson & Neave 2007). These pressures include fitness demands, verbal abuse and pressure to make a number of correct decisions over the course of a match.

Include Connect Psych as part of your team to support you and your organisation. 

More than 40% of elite sport coaches surveyed suffered mental ill-health. They need our support, not stigma.
