AthleteTalk is mental health and wellness app that utilizes a social media wellness feed, multi-day wellness plans, wellness videos, and more to engage athletes in mental health “workouts”. AthleteTalk combines these key features to normalize mental health, break the stigma around mental health and compel athletes to regularly work on their mental health and wellness.

This partnership is consistent with the Hawks goal to provide an athletic and wellness and program that provides transformational, educational, and athletic opportunities for students to grow and develop.
