The Mental Health of Retired Athletes


Crawford, Morgan

About me

My name is Morgan Crawford. I am graduating from Ryerson University this April with a degree in Professional Communication and a minor in Marketing. My University experience has taught me so much and has helped me develop skills that I will take with me into my professional career. I want to enter the workforce in a sports marketing role, where I can combine my love for marketing, communication, and athletics.


My research focuses on the mental health of single-sport athletes that have retired in the past five years. My goal was to highlight the emotions athletes felt after retiring from their sport and determine what mental health issues they faced. I have currently done a survey and discovered preliminary findings on the amount of athletes that have felt their mental health was affected after retiring from their sport and what symptoms they experienced. I hope to develop my research further in the future and expand to encompass all athletes.
