With the launch of its program offering mental health support and discounted care to all former student-athletes, Louisiana State University is the first to create an initiative supporting former student-athlete mental health.
Navigating the transition from the world of college athletics to the professional workforce comes with a handful of challenges. The LSU Athletic Department set out to find a solution to provide for all of their former student-athletes. Thus, Tiger Legacy Care was born.
The program's twenty-four hour mental health crisis hotline is available to all of LSU's Varsity programs, former LSU student-athletes, and even their families. In this way, LSU sets out to support the athletes who have given so much to their universities.
Tiger Legacy Care was made possible by LSU's partnership with Our Lady of the Lake Hospital and Hall of Fame Health. Click here to read more about this ground-breaking program.
