A personal campaign sponsored by The Fantasy Authority
Mental health awareness is becoming a big push for the NFL, but not only NFL players experience mental health issues. Take these statistics from the National Alliance on Mental Health:
Approximately 1 in 5 adults in the U.S. - 43.8 million, or 18.5% - experiences mental illness in a given year.
Approximately 1 in 5 youth aged 13-18 (21.4%) experiences a severe mental disorder at some point during their life. For children aged 8-15, the estimate is 13%.
18.1% of adults in the U.S. experienced an anxiety disorder such as posttraumatic stress disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder and specific phobias.

As part of The Fantasy Authority's push to give back to those in need, we'll be fundraising for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention throughout the 2017 Draft Season.
Through our website, podcasts and social media presence, we're looking to help raise $1,000 towards helping the AFSP's push towards mental health awareness.
