For investigating the effect of Diamond apps, This study used a Quasi-experiment, which involved 123 participants. The participants were divided into 2 groups, the intervention group received a Diamond application instalment, while the comparison group did not receive any program. Both groups were measured 2 times (before and after intervention).

Awareness and concerns about elite athletes’ mental health have arisen lately, but their investigation in developing countries such as Indonesia has been fairly limited. Concerns over elite athletes’ mental health require a careful examination of psychosocial factors as the challenges could vary depending on the culture and country. In a study about psychosocial demands in Indonesian elite athletes, 3 (three) potential stressors have been identified:
1) temporality of athletic career;
2) cultural appropriateness which is not synchronised with athletic demands;
3) Organizational stressors. 2 (two) socially acceptable coping has been identified too:
i) adopting religious practice and values;
ii) relying on family members (especially parents) as coping resources. Social expectations that athletes have to be mentally tough might be silencing their voices when experiencing mental health problems.
Based on the results, this research recommends supervising career transition and educating mental health literacy since early careers are crucial to athletes.
