Mom to Mom in the Stands
September 22, 2016
One of the most powerful forces in sports is between mom to mom in the stands.
This is where honest and pertinent exchanges of information are quietly shared.
It's where a mom can reveal to another trusted mom how her kid is really doing.
This is where validation is received regarding the many absurdities in sports.
It is also where moms often share that their kid is anxious, tired, or depressed.
Anxiety, insomnia, and depression are rapidly on the rise among athletes.
Moms trust other moms when it comes to getting help regarding mental health.
This is where mental health stereotypes and barriers are being torn down.
This is where help and hope lives. Thankfully.
The power of mom to mom in the stands is changing mental health in sports.
