Hi everyone I am Shole, 28 yo basketball coach and now Digital Marketing Team member. I do enjoy talking about mental health a lot, and think it's very underappreciated in sports and in generally more underdeveloped countries. Which is why I love to partake in conversations about it.

My personal experience is pleasant so far. I never had any problems myself. But I have known people who need them.
Spice Welcome and enjoy the board Harry.
I am the owner of a popular online community, and during the Lockdown in the UK, I have been struggling with Anxiety and Depression, so I thought I'd join and use my spare time to meet some like-minded people. I'm Alex. Nice meeting you all!
