Mental Health in Sports

The recent stories of Simone Biles and Naomi Osaka have brought more awareness of mental health issues in sports.  At the elite level, where all the athletes are physically superior, some quote that performance is 80+% mental.  Independent of sports, mental health issues such as depression and anxiety are common. To better understand the significance of these conditions consider watching the Netflix documentary Untold Breaking Point.  It may serve to better understand the significance of anxiety and panic attacks and their effect on life as well as sports performance.
