In this session...

We’ve been touched by the bravery of Naomi Osaka, Simone Biles, and so many before them, who have prioritized their wellbeing over complying with the expectations and pressures placed on them by media, sports, and other industries. In continuing the conversation they’ve sparked we’ll examine the role of the media in either ailing or aiding the stress levels of public figures, how we hold these public figures to superhuman standards and the responsibility of comms and marketing industries in normalizing the conversation around mental health.

What You'll Learn from This Session...

  1. Learn how the media can better support the potential anxieties of athletes
  2. Understand what key factors can impact the mental health of athletes and other celebrities.
  3. Examine new ways of approaching athletes as people and destigmatizing prioritization of mental health, in the discussion of health issues.
