Mind Assist. The story of former WNBA Star Chamique Holdsclaw
She was called the Michael Jordan of women’s basketball. Chamique was inducted into the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame in 2018 after three national titles with the Tennessee Lady Volunteers, being named WNBA Rookie of the Year in 1999, WNBA scoring champion (2002), the rebounding champion (2002, 2003) and an All-Star six times. But there is another side of this sports story, beyond the one with points and dunks: Chamique’s lifelong fight against mental illness. Depression and bipolar disorder derailed her career and personal development but Chamique was able to rebound, as well as she was doing on the basketball court, and give her life new meaning and purpose. Chamique Holdsclaw is now a mental health advocate and the subject of a documentary film “Mind/Game: The Unquiet Journey of Chamique Holdsclaw.” It tells the story of a WNBA All-Star’s experience with mental illness. Chamique’s journey reflects the challenges faced by millions of people and families dealing with similar issues. It helps us all understand, through the experience of a major sports influencer, the importance of identifying challenges, seeking help, and being open with others to achieve healthy and fulfilling lives. "When I was the best, I didn't want to be," Chamique confesses, "I didn't know who I was then. I do now."
