*SHOW TIMESTAMPS FEATURED AT THE END*
In this episode, Gerry welcomes Philadelphia Phillies Mental Skills Coach, Hannah Huesman, on the show to talk everything pertaining to mental health and improving mental health performance for athletes.
To start, Hannah discusses her journey into the field, education and the things she has learned both in AND out of school that has shaped her outlook of human mental health, particularly for athletes. From there, Hannah details a bit of the difference between working with normal, everyday people and athletes, and how it is also connected when it comes to certain aspects of human behavior.
From there, the conversation turns to some key aspects of mental health performance for athletes including taking risks (both on and off the field), how to equip yourself with tools to succeed, everything pertaining to failure and some of the biggest struggles players tend to have.
