COLUMBUS — The Tim May Podcast is back for another episode as Ohio State makes its way through the tail-end of the offseason.

Lettermen Row’s Tim May has a huge edition of the show, this time diving into athlete’s mental health, and the idea that Ohio State is on the cutting edge of this pressing issue for college athletes.

Tim talks to Dr. Chelsi Day, the sports psychologist for the Ohio State Wexner Medical Center. Dr. Day works exclusively with Buckeyes athletes to deal with their mental health and make sure they have the tools and resources they need as student-athletes.

Dr. Day’s biography on the Wexner Medical Center website details more of her job:

At Ohio State, the most common conditions I treat are anxiety, depression and adjustment issues. I help student-athletes develop performance enhancement strategies through mental skills training. I’m pleased to work here because of the potential for programmatic growth and the fact that the university’s location in a bustling downtown area gives us a very diverse patient population.

Tim also made sure to ask Buckeyes linebacker Teradja Mitchell and head coach Ryan Day what they believe about athlete’s mental health back in the spring, and those answers were included in this edition of the podcast, making it a must-listen for fans hoping to further understand the issues they deal with.

How do the Buckeyes help their athletes? What resources are available? Why is this such a large issue in college athletics right now?
