For generations, professional athletes have been looked upon as heroes/role models for the younger set. Yet, current date shows that up to 35% of elite athletes suffer from a mental health issue which may manifest as stress, burnout, an eating disorder, anxiety or depression. On this edition of "Conversations of Connection...Mental Wellness in Sports & Life", Timmy Newsome, a member of the Dallas Cowboys All-Decade Team of the 80's and member of the Winston Salem State University Athletic Hall of Fame, discusses the subject with co-hosts, Scott Murray and Dr. Nina Rios-Doria. Timmy, who is most involved as a volunteer in the philanthropic world in north Texas, is presently the Founder and Chief Technology Officer for NEWTEC Business Solutions, specializing in unified communications and collaboration products and services, but, shares great insight into the issue of mental wellness in the sports world.
At this time in our world with so much uncertainty, we listen and learn from those involved or connected in the sports world as they share their own personal stories and how it's impacted them to focus on mental wellness. Scott Murray and Dr. Nina Rios-Doria hope to always leave the audience fully engaged, encouraged and inspired, while assuring you that you're not alone. To move forward positively and productively, we must never forget we all need one another for the support necessary to improve our overall mental health and the world we all live in.
