ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Many student athletes experience mental health problems such as depression and anxiety, but they are often reluctant to seek help for a variety of reasons. The Athletes Connected program, developed with initial funding from an NCAA Innovations in Research and Practice Grant, is a unique collaboration between the University of Michigan School of Public Health, Depression Center, and Athletic Department to increase awareness of mental health issues, reduce the stigma of help-seeking, and promote positive coping skills among student athletes.
