Mental Health in Athletes (And Beyond)

Naomi Osaka recently withdrew from the Wimbledon Tennis Tournament. Mental health seems to have played a role. Osaka is not the first athlete and certainly won’t be the last to struggle publicly and make big decisions as a result. In this episode, Brad and Steve dive into the topic of mental health in elite athletes. They discuss the wonderful impact of more awareness and less stigma around mental health, but also the dangers of stopping there—versus going on to effective treatment methods, which usually require some level of playing through the pain. An important episode on an important topic that benefits from a bit more nuance than how it has been covered in the mainstream press to date.
