What is sports psychiatry?

Sports psychiatry is mental health care tailored to the needs of athletes. At Lewis Family Psychiatry, the team of psychiatric care providers offers comprehensive telepsychiatry to athletes of all ages and skill levels. 

Why is sports psychiatry important?

Sports psychiatry is important because the mental aspects of athletic performance are often overlooked. As an athlete, you spend many hours training your body to be stronger, faster, and more efficient.

But, most of the leading pro athletes are quick to attest to the importance of the mental game when it comes to sports performance. Sports psychiatry can help you develop strategies to excel in your sport, such as: 

  • Positive thinking
  • Building your confidence
  • Using visualization to improve your game
  • Develop creative thinking patterns
  • Improve your focus and concentration
  • Manage hopelessness after sports injuries

Sports psychiatry essentially gives you tools to strengthen and improve your mind while you build your physical skills. 

The Lewis Family Psychiatry team can help you learn healthy coping skills, stress management, good decision-making, and other important skills that provide benefits in both sports and the other aspects of your life. 

How does sports psychiatry work?

Sports psychiatry, like all mental health care at Lewis Family Psychiatry, occurs through telepsychiatry appointments. Telepsychiatry is a branch of telemedicine in which you meet with your mental health care providers through a private secure platform online. 

You can use any internet-connected device to access the web and the platform. You’ll speak to your provider face-to-face as you discuss your symptoms, concerns, and goals for your treatment. 

Lewis Family Psychiatry offers comprehensive sports psychiatry, including recommendations for lifestyle changes, supplement and vitamin recommendations, and psychopharmacology (medication prescriptions) if needed. 

The team customizes your treatment plan and offers ongoing support. As an established patient, you’ll also have convenient text message access to mental health providers. 

Sports psychiatry is easily accessible for athletes, even when traveling. You can access mental health care from anywhere in the state of Florida as a patient at the practice.

Lewis Family Psychiatry can help you train your brain for success in sports, so why wait to establish that extra edge? Set up your sports psychiatry appointment by calling the office or clicking on the online appointment feature today.
