Breaking down the stigma: Nobleza’s quest for mental health inclusion in baseball

In her second season, Nobleza has been working tirelessly to break down the stigma surrounding mental health in the world of sports. Initially, she was worried about how her work would be received, but she was pleasantly surprised by the receptiveness of players and staff to mental health initiatives.

Despite the challenges that come with a rigorous travel schedule and strenuous demands, Nobleza emphasizes that mental health is just as significant as physical health. She sees her role as a model for inclusivity and progress in the world of sports, encouraging others to seek help and view it as an act of courage rather than weakness.

Nobleza’s innovative approach has helped set a positive example for future professionals, especially young women aspiring to enter the field. By normalizing mental health discussions, Nobleza aims to improve players’ performance both on and off the field.

In addition to working with players and coaches, Nobleza also focuses on breaking down barriers between different departments within the organization. She believes that everyone should have access to resources and support when it comes to mental well-being, regardless of their role or position within the team.

As she continues to make strides in this area, Nobleza hopes that her work will inspire others to prioritize mental health and create a more supportive environment for athletes at all levels of play. Ultimately, she wants baseball to be about more than just muscles and movement – it should also be about taking care of our minds and bodies in equal measure.
