- Princeton Public Health Review
My name is Bella Nadeau. I am a junior student-athlete who competes for the softball team at the University of Massachusetts Boston in the NCAA Division 3. For years I have struggled with mental health, but when I got to college it was surely amplified. I lacked the platform, resources, and support to confidently talk about my problems. The Let's Get Real About Athlete Mental Health Campaign provides athletes everywhere with the platform to share their stories in a safe place, receive support from other athletes, and help to end the stigma surrounding mental health issues.
