Then, Columbia University Medical Center’s Chief Psychiatrist, Dr. Jeffrey Lieberman, talks about how pressure to compete can affect you mentally and physically. Finally, Eric Mitchell, Sports Analyst & CEO of LifeFlip Media talks about how athletes are put on a pedestal and held to a different standard.
