Check out what our attendees have been saying at our events.
The numbers who are experiencing stress and anxiety is on the rise.
The statistics you see here are the reason that we have created I Got Mind. The information above is not only from athletes, but the adults who attend our events as well. Stress and Anxiety can create many of the mental illnesses that we are seeing across all demographics. Our courses and events are designed to begin the journey of understanding of how to live a mentally healthy life. It is necessary for all of us to not only know this information, but to use it daily. Your greatest responsibility is you.

” We were given tickets through KidSport, an amazing organization that has made it possible for my kids to enjoy sports. My 14 year old is having a difficult time with his teammates on his A boys basketball team. He transferred to his new school this year and has taken the starting spot from another student there is a handful of teammates that have disputed this and put in grivinces about him stealing another students spot. These boys put him down, calling him trash and always saying he’s only good for getting hurt. As his mom I’ve listened to this and it’s broke my heart. He’s never let it show that it bothered him. After your presentation he told me he felt so relieved and thankful I made him go. Caleb had the biggest impact on him. He told me he now knows he’s not alone but at the same time he knows he’s completely alone.he realizes that’s a hard way to explain a very complex emotion. He’s thankful to know he’s not the only one to experience this alienation but sad that so many have. I enjoyed ( I believe her name was Sarah) the girl as I could relate to her. I grew up with 4 brothers playing ice hockey and in-line hockey with them , in a separate change room and had a huge shock when I joined school sports on a girl team. I find with the boys it’s behind the coaches back and with girls it’s behind the coaches and each others. My point being that it was very beneficial to have a variety of panelists. Thank you for this very educational, inspirational eye opening event. It has made a huge positive impact on my sons life in sports, in school and even with his siblings. You are making a difference!”
“I have to give a big shout out to Bob and Shawn. They took time to talk with me and my son during a hard time. The one on one they did with him made him feel “normal” and that he wasn’t alone. He has had a rough month and I wish I could say its gotten easier, but were still working hard at changing his mind set with the anxiety attaches. I must say though at a hockey game the other night it took about 10 minutes for him to go onto the ice he was very panicky and overwhelmed with metal emotions, he used the term “I pretended i was hitting the monkey in my head with a hammer to get those bad thoughts out of my head” and went onto the ice and scored. He is learning to fight through it. Regardless thank you thank you thank you. Means a lot to know there is help out there and we have now met with a child physiologist and are making connections to make him feel more comfortable with talking and knowing he is not alone. <3″
“Amazing presentation. A must see for any parent athlete or coach. This should be a mandatory session for all athletes coaches and parents in sport . Bob Wilkie and his team really put their message through and do a tremendous job. Well done!”
All of the courses provided really valuable insight or reminders. I felt the power differential was excellent. Recognizing that yes, the coach is ultimately in charge but inclusion and empowerment with your players keeps the coach and players (and parents) and a better stream with communication, performance and team development.
“They talk to the people, not at people, easy to comprehend . Relatable across age groups, personal experiences , and the honesty was amazing. we are all a work in progress, and this presentation encourages to reduce the stigma of anxiety, depression , and be able to talk about not being ok. Asking for help, and nurturing hope. Probably hands down best mental health discussion/presentation I have been to.”
