The first full day of camp was a busy one with the time between practices and games filled with a variety of activities from weight lifting and rag ball to a session with Hans Skulstad from Center for Sports and the Mind on Raising Your Game.
After dinner Mark Wick, former head coach at St. Scholastica, talked to the kids about mental health and depression, letting them know that depression is not a problem. But not dealing with depression is a problem, encouraging the kids to be proactive about their mental health, and not wait for it to be a crisis in their lives.
1 in 4 will face a mental health challenge in their lives and nearly half of kids the age of this week's campers are showing signs of anxiety and depression. Unlike physical issues that we can see, mental health can hide so you need to advocate for yourself. Only you know what you are thinking and feeling.
Wick offered his contact information for players to reach out to him if they have questions. His number is 218-590-9241.
