After high-profile Olympians Naomi Osaka and Simone Biles upended the world’s long-held notion of athletic grit by taking mental health time-outs in the midst of competition, their actions sparked heated debate over the benefits and dangers associated with the traditional sports strategy of powering through adversity.
A panel of Albizu University psychology professors and mental health professionals convenes for a one-hour webinar, free and open to the public, to analyze the no pain-no gain concept of the winning at all costs and how to determine where to draw the line in the quest for championship, whether in sports or other competitive endeavors.
The discussion will center on the importance of prioritizing mental and physical health and the stigma that persists around admitting exhaustion.
The webinar will be livestreamed via Zoom and via Facebook Live on Albizu University’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/AlbizuMIA
