NFL Releases Video Series in Support of Mental Health Awareness Month

NiiLampti said that despite the greater attention paid to mental health, there are still some hurdles to overcome. Mental health and mental illness have become synonymous, but they are not. Mental health is on a continuum, NiiLampti said, and depending on the day and circumstance, a person will be in a different spot on that continuum. Older players and coaches might still feel the stigma around needing help. Younger players may have already grown comfortable with mental health services provided at college, but they may think they need help only in a time of crisis. NiiLampti said she hopes to make them understand you don’t have to be in crisis and can be intentional about protecting your mental well-being. And she hopes the initiative will help demystify counseling and mental health treatment. “I have a player, he’ll say things like you work with a strength and conditioning coach, do the same thing with a nutritionist, why not take that approach with your mind,” NiiLampti said. “If you can work with someone who specializes in how to optimize your performance from a mental side, why would you not do that? You end up with a better player on the field and you end up with a better person.”
