THE RISING ISSUE OF MENTAL HEALTH IN STUDENT-ATHLETES
Mental health among student-athletes has become a pressing issue in recent years. Juggling the demands of competition, academics, and social life can take a toll on their mental well-being, placing them at higher risk of feeling overwhelmed, which puts them at risk of developing anxiety, burnout, depression, or other mental illnesses. Statistics from the NCAA and tragic cases regarding mental illness have made it clear that this issue demands immediate attention.

WHO WE ARE AND HOW WE HELP
Collegiate Behavioral Health Associates was founded to support the mental well-being of student-athletes nationwide with a full range of services, from self report screenings to options for long-term therapy, all handled by our qualified professionals chosen from a diverse network.
Our program is designed to cover every facet of mental health care, from screening and evaluating to diagnosing and treating, or referring, when necessary. This creates greater opportunities for in-house resources like counseling to work closely with their athletes, or for athletes themselves to receive care set on the same priority as any required physical wellness exam.
WHY WE HELP
At CBHA, we believe student-athletes deserve to be the best version of themselves in every aspect of their life.
By prioritizing their mental health, they can perform better on the field, in the classroom, and in their personal lives.
Don’t let mental health issues hold your student-athlete back.
