Athletes and Mental Health: The Hidden Opponent | Victoria Garrick | TEDxUSC

The issue of MENTAL HEALTH in college students, specifically college student-athletes, is stigmatized and neglected. According to a 2011 study by the National College Athletic Association, 30% of about 200,000 student-athletes reported feeling depressed. 50% also claimed to have experienced overwhelming anxiety, and this information is six years out of date. Student-athletes are typically praised as celebrities on campus, considered strong and brave. When we walk by and people cheer, “Great win last night,” they can't see that we are struggling with issues incurable by their praise and affirmation. We minimize the effects of our depression, anxiety, or eating disorder, because society does not encourage us to come forward. Student-athletes endure five hours of team commitment daily, 18 hours of class weekly, and the pressure to physically perform no matter what the circumstance. You can't see mental health issues like you can see an ankle sprain.

Why Self-Efficacy Matters | Mamie Morrow | TEDxFSCJ

At some point all of us have felt our CONFIDENCE waver or worried we couldn't overcome a problem we faced. But can we really learn to persevere—and even get better at it over time? Mamie Morrow knows we can. Building on her 20 years' experience as an educator, Morrow shows us how our belief in our own ability to succeed is critical to actually succeeding, and how this belief—known as “self-efficacy”—can in fact be taught once it's broken down into its constituent parts. The keys to self-efficacy include personally experiencing success with the specific task; observing others like ourselves succeeding in the task; receiving regular encouragement; and learning to reinterpret and thus manage negative feelings, including anxiety and the fear of failure. Mamie Morrow has taught pre-K, elementary, and secondary students in schools around the world. In her work as a Teachstone CLASS specialist, she has led training and coaching programs for teachers, coaches, and administrators across the United States. Morrow earned her bachelor's and master's degrees in elementary education from the University of New Mexico. She lives in Jacksonville, Florida with her husband and two daughters
