Canadians who are directly affected by a situation of maltreatment in sport may be admissible to a range of support services, including mental health referrals and legal aid.
Mental Health Support Program
Beyond the initial support provided by operators at the Canadian Sport Helpline, eligible individuals have access to a suite of services through the Canadian Centre for Mental Health and Sport. Even before filing a complaint, they could be referred to psychologists, psychotherapists and counsellors, mental performance consultants, psychiatrists, and physicians.
