Partnering with the NFL Players Association

We’re continuing to honor Mental Health Awareness Month by announcing our partnership with the NFL Players Association.

The NFLPA is the union that represents players, but it also supports their families, their business interests, and their identities when they’re not wearing their jerseys. Dedicated to players’ well-being and success on and off the field, the NFLPA is investing not just in mental health but in cognitive health as well. That’s a mission we can get behind.

And in 2021—in the wake of the pandemic, a year of high racial tension, and uncertainty about sports’ immediate future—the NFLPA is focusing on the theme of Resilience. We’re helping support that theme by providing incentives for players to use our cognitive training and mindfulness programs.

Learn what resilience means to the players you know and love, and reflect on how you’ve been resilient over the last year or so.
