In this week’s episode of Psychology and Stuff, sport and exercise psychologists, Jo Morrissey and Alan Chu, talk about the mental health of high performing athletes. Rooted in recent news about athletes like Simone Biles and Naomi Osaka choosing to prioritize their mental health over competition, they discuss the stress of being a professional athlete and the toll it takes on their overall wellbeing and how sport psychologists and all of us can help.
