To raise awareness of athletes mental health needs, and provide quality mental health education and therapeutic services to those in need.
WHAT'S BEEN SAID...
"Train up a child in the way they should go, and when they are old they will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6
According to NCAA.org, "One of the primary concerns regarding the prevalence of mental illness among student-athletes is that it may affect not only their success in academics and athletics but also their general well-being. While depression and anxiety have been found to be significant predictors of a lower grade-point average and poor athletics performance, they’re also highly correlated with other risky behaviors, including suicide."
"There's more to being a student-athlete than just physical preparation and performance"
"Student athletes are more comfortable seeking mental health services from someone who is familiar with their population and knows how to work with them."
