"I'm Fine, (Not) Really" documentary from Mondo Cares to air this weekend in markets across the nation
Insightful film focuses on mental health challenges faced by top athletes and how they overcome them
SCHAUMBURG, Ill. - April 28, 2022 - PRLog -- Millions of Americans are living with depression, anxiety and other mental health conditions. Among them are collegiate, Olympic and professional athletes, who are always under pressure to win — even if it means putting aside or covering up their personal struggles.
A new focus on elite athletes' mental health has emerged over the past year, and that focus will continue during May, which is National Mental Health Awareness Month. As part of the conversation, Mondo Cares has produced a compelling new documentary, "I'm Fine, (Not) Really." The film examines the unhealthy relationship between elite athletes and their fans and, through firsthand accounts, explores the ever-growing demands athletes face, and how those demands have contributed to an increasing incidence of mental health issues. Watch the trailer here.
The groundbreaking film features candid accounts of overcoming personal obstacles from Olympic athletes and legends, including Jackie Joyner-Kersee, Michael Johnson, Roderick Townsend-Roberts, Stacy Dragila, Shamier Little and Tori Franklin, along with insights from leading coaches and sports psychologists.
"I'm Fine, (Not) Really" is scheduled to air April 30–May 2 in the following markets:
"I'm Fine, (Not) Really" is produced by Darryl Roberts, a former entertainment reporter for NBC News and award-winning producer and filmmaker of the documentary "America the Beautiful," which addressed America's unhealthy obsession with beauty.
