  1. It makes me honestly upset that I’ve heard people in my life, at school and at my old jobs tell me that therapy isn’t necessary or that anxiety and depression aren’t real.

    Everyone needs to know that it is ok that you’re not ok and you’re not a weak person for getting help

  2. This is a subject that hits close to home for me (and a lot of people).

    I think it is important that people like Trey are stepping up and willing to talk about their issues, and hopefully it helps someone else seek help. Mental health is a complex topic and every individual speaks a slightly different language so here are several other stories from other athletes.

    One of the most important things in regards to mental health is recognizing that you are not alone. Talk to someone, anyone if you need to.

    I WOULD NOT encourage ANYONE to read all of the ones listed below, that is depressing even if they offer encouragement. However, everyone relates differently, maybe to a different sport, maybe that is to a different school, or professional team, maybe it is a specific individual, maybe it is an event that triggered it. Regardless you are not alone.

    I would however encourage people to take a skim through if they are not struggling, their are names that will often times surprise people and I can guarantee that everyone knows someone that is going through the issues these individuals talk about, you just may not know it.

    **Here are some of the more common examples and in particular the ones that really got players to start talking about this:**

    * DeMar DeRozan: USC (basketball) star, 4x NBA all star. This was an interview a lot of other athletes have brought this up as inspiration for them telling their story.

    Note: Yes you may have seen this before I post it in most threads that I see along these lines. If you know of a story I missed let me know and I will add it. This is not to detract from the article that is posted, but to provide other resources for people to draw upon, highlight that this IS a major issue, and reinforce the importance of people speaking out.
