Athletes and Mental Health: The Hidden Opponent | Victoria Garrick | TEDxUSC

 

NAIA Health and Safety

Mental health issues are at the forefront of the NAIA’s commitment to student-athlete health and safety.  Understanding and appreciating the complexity of topics related to these issues are key components of the NAIA’s holistic approach to student-athlete development. Recognizing that mental health issues are not only detrimental to performance, but disrupt the healthy function of college students, it is our desire to create a culture where NAIA student-athletes feel safe to reach out about mental health concerns in the same way one might reach out for care of an athletic injury.
