University of St. Thomas Athletics & AthleteTalk Announce Mental Health Partnership

San Antonio, TX- (November 2, 2022) – AthleteTalk, LLC will partner with the University of St. Thomas Athletics to provide AthleteTalk – a mental health and wellness app – to all Tommie student-athletes. AthleteTalk utilizes a social media wellness feed, multi-day wellness plans, wellness videos, and more to engage athletes in mental health “workouts”.

Out of 1,000-plus NCAA institutions at the Division I, II and III levels, St. Thomas is the only one to have secured at least one NCAA team championship in each of the sports of baseball, softball, volleyball and men’s and women’s basketball.

“A partnership with St. Thomas Athletics is ideal because Dr. Estens’ key verticals include student-athlete welfare and development, and St. Thomas Athletics continues to make significant investments in this area. As a former baseball student-athlete, Dr. Esten understands what student-athletes endure and the mind and body connection. We are especially excited for the vision of Jim Rakow, Robert Zelesnikar, and Jemal Griffin for integrating AthleteTalk into existing and future student-athlete wellbeing efforts. With AthleteTalk, St. Thomas will get more than just an app – they will get our unmatched effort to engage athletes in mental health and wellness.”– Emmett Gill, Jr. Founder, AthleteTalk, LLC
