"Victoria’s visit to the Virginia Tech Athletics Department far exceeded our expectations. The session she had with our coaches and other staff members opened the eyes of everyone in the room about the reality of mental health issues and college athletics. But the meeting she had with our student-athletes was, in a word, amazing. The auditorium was filled to capacity with athletes who attended voluntarily and our students left feeling the power that comes from acknowledging our struggles and reaching out for help to deal with them. We offer a variety of programs to our student-athletes—I cannot recall one being as well-received as Victoria’s. She has a keen knack for connecting with the collegiate student-athlete population and helping them believe that they are not alone and they do not need to suffer in silence."
