Bharat Sampathi, MD, and Priya Gearin, MD, interview Sydney Wetterstrom, a Division 1 women's volleyball player, on mental health in competitive sports. Sydney provides an athlete's perspective on mental illness and its effects on athletic performance, stigma towards mental health in collegiate and professional sports, and psychiatric medications affecting play. We also discuss Sydney's Student-Athlete Sexual Health (SASH) initiative and more. This serves as part two of our Sports Psychiatry series.
