How Team USA Paralympian Sarah Adam Stays Mentally Fit

May 7, 2024

For Mental Health Awareness month, Team USA’s Sarah Adam shares how she manages stress, stays positive, and prioritizes rest to perform her best. Sarah offers advice for young athletes facing mental health challenges and reminds them to seek support. 

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.
