Former NFL Chaplain Introduces Mental Health Children's Book
New Children's Book Launch to Boost Kindness and Mental Health
"My hope is that 'Alex The Hippo - Kindness & Mental Health' will boost our youngest children to think good, feel good and do good," said Ybarra. "The book fills the heart with strength to cope with stresses of life, no matter what a day brings."
As a Chaplain to professional athletes, it's an amazing platform athletes have within society and culture. "I'm thankful of athletes speaking up about mental health." Over the past few years, high-profile athletes have shined a light on mental health, who are shattering the stigma of silence. As a means to show my gratitude, I dedicated Alex The Hippo - Kindness and Mental Health to Stephen Curry, Kevin Love, Simone Biles, DeMar DeRozan, and Naomi Osaka.
As well as being accomplished author, Ybarra is Founder of The Tenacious Group, a non-profit to advocate for educational resources to support students.
