VIRGINIA BEACH, Va - Athletes are not immune to personal struggles with mental health. The Virginia Sports Hall of Fame and NAMI want to continue to decrease the stigma associated with mental illness.

The upcoming event "Changing the Game" will provide first hand stories of struggle and strength as well as a clinical perspective on how sports organizations are addressing the issue. We talk with a social worker and a former college running back turned author who will be part of the discussions about their stories.
