"Be transformed by the renewing of your mind"- Romans 12:2

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"
