Part 2: Mental Health of Athletes & the NBA with Dr. William Parham – Episode 99

This episode resumes the conversation with Dr. Graham Taylor and Dr. William Parham the inaugural Director of the National Basketball Players Association (NBPA) Mental Health and Wellness Department. We have not yet begun to see what real GOAT (greatest of all time) behavior looks like. If we to invest, from the beginning all of those systems early on should have a mental health and wellness component as part of their regimen. If we can look at the developmental part of it first, that athletic performance will just naturally evolve the way that it's designed to evolve. Mental health is the missing link and maximizing one's true potential.
