90% Mental is a show that promotes awareness around mental performance within sport by interviewing athletes and coaches to share their stories and perspectives regarding sport psychology topics. This week we are going to shift to a different type of awareness, a very serious and real topic… teen suicide and teen mental health. Luke Bottari, Quarterback at Serra High School and Founder of Play4 Prevention Foundation, who was recently named the prestigious Semper-Fidelis All-American, an honor presented by the U.S. Marines Corps. He talks about spreading awareness regarding teen suicide and teen mental health through his foundation. He shares intimate experiences about what drove him to take such a passionate stance on this topic. He also talks about the five signs to pay attention to and how to act on them if you know someone who is struggling with stress or depression. This young student athlete is on a mission to spread the word in hopes that his efforts and partnerships can assist in providing information or help for anyone who is struggling with stress, anxiety, or suicidal thoughts.
