Thank you to our Keynote Speaker, Dwight Hollier, former NFL Player turned Therapist, for his Keynote Address!
The Keynote address on Friday morning, Hiding Behind the Muscles, discussed the unique ethos of the Athlete and how it can create barriers for addressing the challenges the culture helps to foster. Although they sometimes seem invincible, athletes suffer with emotional difficulties in the same ways their non-athlete peers do. Unfortunately. stigma and Identity can get in the way of seeking assistance for athletes. During the Keynote Address, Dwight discussed some of the ways the NFL has promoted mental health resources and the steps taken to reduce stigma.
The 2016 President's Reception was the best one ever!
Don't miss it next year - it is included in your registration fee!
