Vision: To change the lives of youth engaged in athletics by teaching mental health principals while incorporating Christ, with a twist.
"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"
"Student athletes are more comfortable seeking mental health services from someone who is familiar with their population and know how to work with them."
