"Timely, Effective, Personalized Care That is Sport Specific"

Mental health among high performance athletes has been a crux for many people for some time now.

Personally, I went through a period of severe depression post Sochi 2014, at one point feeling suicidal before I came across an email from Game Plan de Match.

Ask The Right Questions And You Will Get The Right Answers.

I got this direct message through Instagram the other day, it said; "Kevin, I'm depressed. I can't figure it out. Do you have any advice?" Have you ever felt that way before? When you just don't know what to do?” I get these messages all the time, people trying to figure things out. "Kev, how do I get out of depression?”

I want to share with you a story because what will often surface is that we feel like we don't know why we're depressed and we don't know what to do. And that's super common. Not every time is it something that you can easily solve but often it is, and it just becomes a matter of developing some greater self-awareness.

Stop running away from your problems. There's so many of you who just want to peace out as soon as a problem comes your way. You need to stick around. The problem with running away from your problems, is that the problem doesn't go away. It's an escape. You can say "I don't want to deal with this right now." Or, "I'm overwhelmed." and that's normal, that's a regular reaction to going through something that.

But the problem is that we think that is going to help us in the long run. But really it kills us in the short-term, and the faster you deal with problems in the short-term, the faster you can get to that long term feeling, the ultimate goal and outcome that you're looking for.

3 Books to Help You Through Tough Times and Stay Positive

I get asked all the time when I was in rehab, “what were some of the things that I did to stay positive?” Ironically at that point in my life, reading was not something that I ever really cared for or did at all, but given that I had so much time to just sit there and do nothing, a couple people started bringing me books.


The next thing you know, I was reading regularly, every single week. That has since carried on in my life to this day.


Here are three books that I would recommend for anybody going through some challenging times, and things that have really significantly helped me in my own life.
