Athletes and mental health. Part II. Seeking help.
“Imagine a world where mental health was something we talked about as if we talked about what we’re going to have for lunch,” Eve Macfarlane.
Part two of the five-part mini-series on athletes’ mental health dives into seeking help. Eve and Zoe McBride talk about where they found help and give suggestions for other people who are in the same position.
“It’s not physical and it’s not black and white, there are so many different levels of it. To be able to talk about it and acknowledge it and to feel like you’re supported through it and you’re not going through it alone is really important,” says Zoe.
