This paper attempts to increase mental health awareness among student-athletes in college. Two players from the men’s basketball team at California State University, Monterey Bay participated in an interactive presentation regarding the impact that stress, anxiety, and injuries have on mental health and how to cope. The impacts are performance-related as well as impacting social life, academics, and relationships. The participants filled out forms and took a short quiz to see if they understood the impacts and were able to identify coping strategies. Results showed that they fully understood the effects that stress, anxiety, and injuries have on mental health and were able to identify at least one new coping strategy that they learned.
