Coaching for Mental Well-being

What is coaching for mental well-being?

There is no health without mental health. We believe it is critical to support coaches in navigating the complexity of the human experience, including emotions - small and big. Having an awareness of the continuum of psychological well-being prepares coaches to work within the spaces of healthy, reacting, and injured; knowing when and how to refer when a client is experiencing emotional pain. ​


  • Recognize common indicators of declining mental well-being and other challenges

  • Identify factors that support mental thriving

  • Explore common myths about mental health and suicide

  • Use mental health screeners for anxiety, depression and suicidal ideation

  • Identify early warning signs of declining mental health; red and yellow flags for mental health concerns​

  • Identify the reasons to refer clients for treatment by specialist providers

  • Identify your scope of practice and ethical considerations including mandatory reporting & record keeping

  • Introduce practices for coach self-care and reflection on practice
