The Players’ Tribune is a place where athletes can be open about their struggles and call others to end stigmas and judgement around mental health.
Throughout #MentalHealthAwareness Week, we spotlight their stories.
Today is the start of #MentalHealthAwareness week.
In 2020, @kevinlove opened up about his mental health struggles and how normal it is to experience: “What people on the outside don’t always understand is that it takes all of your strength and willpower just to exist.”
“I think people are scared of me and of the situation and they really don't understand bipolar.”
@EversonGriffen shares the truth about bipolar disorder with @coreyhirsch and Dr. Diane McIntosh on #BlindsidedPod.

“I get to wake up in the morning and do what I love to do — play basketball for a living, be a good father to my sons, and carry on the legacy and the light of Frances Ann Pulley ....
That’s my purpose now.” —@JohnWallhttps://t.co/YThesc8NVy
“I wish I could reach out to that kid.
I wish I could tell him to just grieve, to just miss his mom.
I wish I could tell him that it’s O.K. to be sad.
But that kid…. He lost his best friend, the rudder of his life.” —@Joel_Dahmen
Thankful for @JohnWall vulnerability in this powerful article. It takes a lot to strength to ask for help but it’s so important. We all will be impacted by mental health and hard times in our lives, it’s vital to know that we don’t have to do it alone. ✊🏽 https://t.co/QfBG6oG4WF
