Asking for help with anything can be difficult, especially when you’re dealing with a mental health issue.  As athletes, we’re often taught to “tough it out” or “suck it up.”  When we’re dealing with a little discomfort, that can work.  When we’re dealing with a medical condition like depression or anxiety, toughing it out does NOT help us to get better.  The good news is that help is available.
