Galea and University of the Pacific are excited to team up to provide athletes with holistic, proactive mental health and mental performance support.
In the world of college athletics, pressures such as busy schedules, academic stress, social challenges, and performance anxiety as well as common challenges like perfectionism, burnout, OCD, substance use, and eating disorders increase the stress that student-athletes experience. Players who suffer a serious injury are two to seven times more likely to report mental health conditions than their peers. Learning how to manage stress and prioritize mental health are crucial aspects of emotional well-being, athletic performance, and academic success. University of the Pacific is committed to supporting student-athletes providing resources for student-athletes so they can excel on and off the field.
Galea vets and curates athlete-aligned therapists and performance coaches in California with expertise ranging from clinical mental health to peak performance. Galea also offers personalized referrals for any UPacific athletes, coaches, or administrators seeking support from a mental health or mental performance professional.
