 Bloom et al. (2020) advocated that mental performance consultants (MPCs) can play an important supporting role in the psychosocial recovery and well-being of concussed athletes. The rapid advancement of knowledge and limited resources designed for MPCs present challenges in facilitating this support. To address these challenges, a group of MPCs formed a community of practice to help define our role in this domain. In this article, we have attempted to translate our knowledge of concussion and related psychosocial support into an accessible narrative and approach that can help MPCs better understand our role in providing support to concussed athletes throughout the phases of return-to-play.
