"Mental health to me is just as important as our physical health. I think this topic is something that’s often swept under the rug not only for people but athletes especially. The negative stigma that surrounds mental health for men and women needs to be eliminated. As athletes we’re put on a pedestal and are subjected to criticism left and right, resulting in us creating these unrealistic standards for ourselves and being heart broken when we don’t reach them. I’m grateful enough to have a large platform that helps me educate those around me!
