Frequently, the spouses of athletes in crisis reach out for help first. You are often the first witness when thing start to unravel. Athletes have been trained to keep their mental health struggles to themselves.
The common sentiment is that mental stress is a sign of weakness . . . even though no one would play on an injured knee!
