5 Athletes on Their Experience with Mental Illness

Brought to you: Outsideonline.com



This is what I call a gut check article. It provides 5 dynamic yet succinct real-life stories from athletes, highlighting their struggles with mental health. Rather than providing a list of various coping strategies (though several resources are mentioned), it serves more to bring light to what these mental challenges/illnesses look like, allowing us to better identify them in our community and selves.


Can you relate to any of their experiences? If so, please reach out! You are worth it.
