Berry Provides Athletes Mental Health Guidelines

Athletes go through the same ups and downs as anyone else. In addition to playing their sport, they also have to juggle school and life in general.

While a lot of people think they can handle anything that comes their way, behind the scenes some may be struggling with mental health issues.

In this week’s “Starting the Conversation” segment, we sat down with Dr. Doug Berry, Interim Vice President of Academic Affairs at Phoenix College.

He discusses resources athletes of any age can use when seeking out help and that just because you ask for help doesn’t mean you’re weak. In fact, it’s one of the bravest things they can do.
