Game Face


Camryn Ledwith and Jami Ward

Every day student-athletes across the country participate in some type of interscholastic sport. In fact, nearly eight million teens in the US play a high school sport. Beyond that number, 38 percent of female athletes and 22 percent of male athletes face struggles with mental health due to their sport(s). Due to a large stigma in the sports world, the mental health of athletes is often ignored and overlooked. In this podcast Camryn, a lacrosse player and Jami, a track and field athlete discuss their perspective on this topic.
