Athletes face opponents in every sport, but there is a hidden opponent that is seldom discussed. This week on LinkedUp our guest, Leeann Passaro—a teacher, coach, former college athlete, and Chief Operating Officer of The Hidden Opponent—discusses the stigma attached to athlete mental health.

The Hidden Opponent was created after Victoria Garrick’s TED Talk where she described the effects of depression, anxiety, and eating disorders on student-athletes, on top of the pressure to perform physically and academically. Learn more from Leeann about the crucial work The Hidden Opponent is doing and how to get involved.
