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.
Beyond the initial support provided by operators at the Abuse-Free 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.
