NBA Mental Health Initiatives

Home » Mental Skills » NBA Mental Health Initiatives

The NBA had made big strides this year regarding how they are screening for and treating their athletes with mental health issues.  Hopefully, this will help to reduce the stigma for athletes who suffer from mental health issues and they will be more likely to seek professional help.  This also gives hope that other professional sports and organizations will take the mental health of their athletes more seriously.

Below is an article describing the NBA’s player-led initiative around mental health that has forced the league to be proactive in confronting stigma and long-standing stereotypes of masculinity and toughness in sports.

I have also included the promotional video that the NBA released describing their mental health and wellness program.
