Brandon Siler, the founder of Legacy Pro Sports Foundation, has experienced more than his fair share of personal struggles with mental health issues. Throughout his career, he witnessed many of his teammates also grappling with these challenges. His NFL career, spanning six years, came to an abrupt end when his teammate and close friend, Jevon Belcher, tragically committed suicide at the Kansas City Chiefs facility in 2012. This devastating event left Brandon disillusioned with the game, leading him to retire from football. Soon after, he found himself battling his own mental health issues, enduring two years of anxiety and depression, during which he attempted suicide twice.

During this difficult period, Brandon also tragically witnessed the losses of teammates and friends, Vincent Jackson, Paul Oliver, Junior Seau, and Shane Olivia, all of whom faced their own battles with mental health.

Brandon attributes his triumph over mental health challenges to finding solace in his faith and the unique resources provided by the Legacy Healthy Minds program.

35% of Professional Athletes Struggle with Mental Health Performance

Only 2% of student-athletes will go on to play professionally. According to various studies and reports, the percentage of professional athletes who struggle with mental health performance is significantly higher than that of the general population. The intense pressure and scrutiny that comes with being a professional athlete can take a toll on mental health, leading to conditions such as anxiety, depression, and substance abuse. These numbers highlight the need for increased support and resources to address the mental health and well-being of athletes.

20 – 35% of College Athletes Struggle with Mental Health Performance

Mental Health Performance is a pervasive issue that impacts millions of individuals worldwide, including college athletes. Unfortunately, mental health concerns in student-athletes are frequently overlooked, and identifying the signs of mental illness can be challenging. However, there are some common indicators, such as changes in mood, including increased irritability, sadness, or anxiety. Other symptoms may involve difficulty concentrating, alterations in sleep patterns, changes in appetite, or inconsistent performance.

Technology-based Solutions

Technology-based solutions for mental health have been gaining popularity in recent years, thanks to advancements in neuroscience and digital technologies:

  • Biofeedback
  • Neurofeedback
  • Brain Mapping

Biofeedback, neurofeedback, and brain mapping therapy are among the most promising technologies utilized to assess and treat mental health performance. Biofeedback involves monitoring a person’s physiological responses to stress, anxiety, or depression, and teaching them techniques to control those responses. Neurofeedback entails training the brain to regulate its activity, leading to improvements in cognitive and emotional functioning. Brain mapping therapy employs advanced imaging techniques to identify areas of the brain affected by mental health performance and target those areas for treatment. Overall, these technology-based solutions offer a unique and effective approach tailored to individual needs, providing hope and relief to those suffering from mental health performance.

Biofeedback is a therapy that focuses on the connection between the mind and body to enhance both physical and mental well-being. In a biofeedback session, a skilled practitioner will use non-invasive sensors to measure specific bodily functions, which are then displayed on a screen. Through practice and guidance, individuals can learn to modify these functions without the need for additional equipment.


An innovative technique that is gaining traction in the field of mental health, particularly among athletes. This technique involves the use of advanced neuroimaging technology to map the brain and identify any abnormalities or dysfunctions that may contribute to mental health issues. By analyzing the activity and connectivity of various regions of the brain, brain mapping can help diagnose conditions such as depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in athletes. Additionally, brain mapping can provide valuable insights into the effects of sports-related concussions and traumatic brain injuries on mental health performance.

Neurocognitive Disability


Neurofeedback, also referred to as EEG biofeedback, is a form of therapy that evaluates an individual’s brainwave activity through computer-based analysis. It uses visual or auditory signals to help patients recognize and modify their thought patterns. Consequently, patients can improve their brain function and potentially alleviate signs of neurological disorders and mental health problems. This therapeutic intervention is known for providing immediate feedback and has been shown to be effective in enhancing brain regulation.
