“In September we held our ‘Leading the Way: Champions in Body, Mind and Soul’ SAAC Retreat and Leadership event. It was at this time and after connecting with our tremendous student-athletes in Conference Carolinas over the course of this athletic year that we determined that there was a true need for a seminar on Mental Health,” said Conference Carolinas Assistant Commissioner Jill Weston. “It is a great opportunity to have open discussions about issues student-athletes and more are facing every day.”

Renowned speaker on the topic and former NCAA student-athlete Ivy Watts (Bio) will serve as the keynote speaker at the inaugural Conference Carolinas Mental Health Workshop. 

In addition, former LSU women’s soccer student-athlete Ashleigh Alcorn, registered dietitian Annie Anderson, Head Athletic Trainer/Senior Woman Administrator at King Sheila Crockett, Chief Resident of Psychiatry Shea Fontana, Director of Counseling & Wellness at Converse Bethany Garr and Belmont Abbey women’s soccer head coach Mike Lynch will serve on the mental health panel.
