Naomi Osaka does a “Passing-Shot” to Mental Health

The tennis champion joins the Modern Health platform to win the match against mental health, with the aim of destigmatizing this issue among marginalized communities and new generations.

There are three fundamental pillars that will be worked on within this collaboration: Training and empowering underrepresented providers, improving access to evidence-based mental health care and promoting mental health and well-being in the community.

The purpose is to be able to combine clinical experience with the close voice of the athlete.

“I came more recently to meditation and although now I find it to be very helpful, I didn’t at first. The reason is that I didn’t like listening to the sound of my own breath – it would just make me more nervous.”
