Coach Mark Potter

Shatter the Stigma. Don't Suffer in Silence.

Thank you to Coach Mark Potter for coming to speak to our student-athletes, coaches, staff, administrators and mental health counselors about The Silent Epidemic: Depression. 

This thirty year head basketball coach, teacher and husband, Mark Potter, spoke about his bout with depression, during the height of his basketball coaching career.  He engaged and inspired his audience while providing strategies for social and emotional wellness and offering HOPE for recovery.  His wife, Nanette, shared her story from the family perspective, which is the often forgotten side of mental illness.  She helps people relate to the thoughts she had and gave us all HOPE.  Her experience is just as powerful as her husbands. 

Coach Potter brings motivation, transformation, and new attitudes that get you thinking.  This was an emotionally inspiring experience that will remain with us all forever.
