Brandi Chastain: A Conversation About Mental Health Fitness

May 16, 2024

For Mental Health Awareness Month, FIFA Women’s World Cup champion, Brandi Chastain teams up with the Child Mind Institute to share her personal story and tips for mental well-being.

As a parent and former athlete, Brandi emphasizes the importance of:

  • Mindfulness and communication for strong family support
  • Meditation and nature for clearing your head and reducing stress
  • Positive visualization for peak performance and confidence

World-class athletes join us in the #MentalHealthFitness campaign to acknowledge the importance of prioritizing mental health as well as physical wellbeing. In personal videos, they share how they’ve been able to face their own mental health challenges and offer pointers on how to combine fitness with core mental health skill building to maintain your #MentalHealthFitness.  

For more inspiring videos on how world-class athletes stay mentally fit, check out this year’s Mental Health Fitness campaign.
