NBA ramps up mental health program setting new expectations for each team— details from a league memo

The NBA is doing what it can to ensure its players are staying healthy mentally. According to Sam Amick of The Athletic, the National Basketball Association has a new mental health policy that will be enforced next season and teams are starting to become privy to it.

When I first started getting into Australian rules football, one of the things that struck me the most was how the sport treated mental health and mental illnesses among its players.

The league has had very limited and minimal assistance available for players, coaches, and more who were struggling with mental health throughout the National Basketball Association in the past, but they seemed to take a "well, at least we have something" approach to the issue.

- Retain and make available to players on a voluntary basis one to two mental health professionals who are licensed in their field and locality, and with experience in assessing and treating clinical mental health issues. A licensed psychiatrist must be available to help manage players' mental health issues as well, Amick reports.
