"I want all male athletes to know that there is absolutely no shame in having struggles with mental health and more importantly that there is no shame in getting help. It’s OK to not be OK, and you are not alone. I struggled with anxiety, depression, and had recurring panic attacks during my career at Georgetown. If I wasn’t open, honest, and vulnerable with my coaches and teammates, I wouldn’t be standing here today as a National Champion. I couldn’t have made it if I kept it bottled inside. Especially as men, we need to conquer the stigma because everyone deserves to get the help they need. Asking for help is true strength. MENtal health is the foundation of your wellbeing, physical performance, and relationships. We must take care of our minds as much as we do our bodies to stay healthy."
