Bedlam is here, but not everything is a rivalry. Star quarterbacks Dillon Gabriel of the University of Oklahoma and Alan Bowman of Oklahoma State University united with the 988 Oklahoma Mental Health Lifeline to emphasize mental well-being for all, especially students.
Statistics show 44% of college students exhibit signs of depression, while one in five Oklahomans wrestles with mental illness. In this partnership, Bowman and Gabriel share their stories, urging people to use 988 – a simple, accessible resource for mental health support. These athletes champion the cause and encourage open conversations.
Mental health matters, no matter what team you support.
