Photography, Psychology, Student-Athletes, Psychological Conditions, Normalizing Struggles
This photography-based project aimed to capture moments that encapsulated various psychological conditions student-athletes may be facing in universities. These bold photographs would serve to be eye catching and draw viewers if they were to be hung up in a gallery for students to see. Under the images there would be captions on which students could read statistics regarding the amount of student -athletes that experience these conditions and an avenue for them to find help if they were struggling with the condition. Studies show that collegiate athletes underreport their struggles with psychological conditions though they occur with greater frequency in this population than non-athletes. This project hopes to normalize these conditions to help alleviate the situation causing athletes to be unwilling to seek help.
