The Hidden Opponent
The Hidden Opponent is an advocacy group that raises awareness for the mental health of student-athletes. This year, I will be a Campus Captain (or an ambassador) for THO and I would love to work with you and your department throughout the year. We believe that everyone should be able to speak openly about their mental health experiences without worrying about being judged or viewed as weak. We are using our platform to help amplify the voices and needs of student-athletes.
Mental health needs to be further addressed among college students. According to the most recent NCAA student-athlete mental well-being study, 47% of student-athletes felt they would be comfortable personally seeking support from a mental health provider on campus. 53% reported that coaches take the mental health concerns of their student-athletes seriously. Only half of the student-athletes believe that mental health is a priority to their athletics department. We have a long way to go to help student-athletes feel comfortable while talking about their mental health.
My role in all of this is to promote the conversation about mental health with hopes of improving the culture among athletes, coaches, athletic trainers, and anyone else involved with athletics at our school. I also want to educate people about mental health and how it plays an important role in our lives as student-athletes. I want your help in running programs that will strive to end the mental health stigma.
Throughout the year, I hope to promote THO online events with mental health professionals, present to individual teams about mental health, and provide students with resources if they are struggling or want to learn more about mental health. As I mentioned before, I would love your help with coordinating a few things throughout the school year. If you have any ideas, feel free to send them my way! If you would like to look into The Hidden Opponent or the Campus Captains program, here are links to our website and Instagram.
This year, I also hope to create a chapter of The Hidden Opponent here at CBU. I would love your support in this process. Through creating a chapter of THO, I want to get more students involved and possibly run a few mental health awareness games!
Overall, the purpose of The Hidden Opponent is to advocate, educate, and support student-athletes. We strive to raise awareness for student-athlete mental health and address the stigma within sports culture. We want to empower athletes around the world to face the hidden opponent together.
