ATP will be aiding the players and staff members in ensuring mental well being amind the coronavirus crisis.

The ATP has announced that it will be working with Sporting Chance and Headspace to support the mental health and well-being of its player members and staff.

The partnership between the ATP and Sporting Chance means ATP Player members will be able to contact a 24/7 helpline providing access to a triage team of therapists.

The tour is also offering players and its employees free subscriptions to Headspace, which offers content about mindfulness and meditation, reports Xinhua news agency.
