Ben Ruvo, CEO of The Hidden Opponent, steps up to the plate to face the stigmas within sport culture on Mental Wellness Wednesday. The President eloquently talks about creating a safe space for student-athletes to share stories and support one another. Mental health is on a spectrum that includes both biological and environmental factors, and all student-athletes are collectively in the same boat with the uncertainty of the upcoming school year. Instilling systems to weather any storm, including COVID, The Hidden Opponent has implemented an umbrella system of Campus Captains to be mental health advocates across universities nationwide. Looking to be a part of the outstanding mental wellness support team, Ryan sends Ben an SOS and applies for a new internship within the organization. After inspiring The Chrises to start a new segment, One Word, Ben chooses “vulnerability” as the single term to sum up The Hidden Opponent. The man on a mission to continually learn and help others leaves The Chrises, and listeners alike, feeling great.
