Champions of the Mind
We aim to increase awareness around mental health and promote more frequent usage of resources available to student athletes.

Project Description

Our team is aiming to make mental health in student athletes a priority. This task may sound difficult, but there are many areas within this social issue we will look at to help achieve our goal. We want to increase awareness of the issue and try to get rid of the stigma surrounding it. A major problem arises when student athletes do not want to admit they need help or do not want to get the help they need because they think it will make them look weak. We want to show them that it is okay to have mental health issues. Furthermore, pressure on academic and physical performance is a major cause of mental health issues. We want to help student athletes learn how to manage their lives in a better way and we want to provide access to mental health resources and treatments. These are just the main issues our team is aiming to solve throughout the course of our social action project.
