Life is a team sport, too.

Life, like football, can have its challenges. No matter what you're going through, confidential support is always available for the entire NFL family—current and former players, coaches, team and league staff, and their family members. Listen to the encouraging words below and remember that you are never alone.

“To My Brothers”

Players lean on each other on the field, and its important to lean on each other off the field, too. Listen to Michael Irvin talk about overcoming issues with help from others.

Life isn't always easy, and can sometimes feel overwhelming. You don't have to face it alone. Reach out and make the call.
