"As a college athlete your MENtal health is sometimes neglected in the pursuit of your future goals. We as athletes are overlooked when it comes to the state of our MENtal health because from the outside looking the perception is that we should have no worries or mental stress do to the benefits and circumstances that come with being a Division 1 athlete. Being a football player the percentage of athletes who go on to the next level is a small number. And that leaves the athletes who do not make it, in cloudy MENtal states, some are blindsided by the reality of not accomplishing their goals and are left with just a pat on the back and a thank you for your service in a sense. I think MENtal health is very important and having outlets and resources that check in on athletes mental health help athletes through the cloudy times they go through during and after sports ends."
