As a student-athlete who is nearing graduation and battled depression throughout the entirety of my life, I know depression in athletics is way more common than people make it seem. I just was scrolling and saw this article and thought that it might help some other athletes who are fighting depression

Hi @contemporaryman, welcome to the forum and thank you for posting that. It could be really helpful to others going through it. I hope you find the forum helpful as well. I know there have been other athletes on here who have pointed out the specific difficulties related to being an athlete and having MH issues.

Glad you found the forum and hope it helps you pull out of this. Are you getting any professional help, btw? xx
