Here's why we're LITT...
Mission: To provide therapy services based in Christian principals.
Vision: To change the lives of youth engaged in athletics by teaching critical biblical principals while targeting a range of mental health concerns. Through LITT, young athletes will become better in their crafts while developing a love and understanding for Christ.
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"
According to Emily B. Klueh, most student athletes are more comfortable seeking mental health services from someone who is familiar with their population and know how to work with them.
