Dam Worth It’s mission is to utilize the influential platform of sport, partnered with the power of storytelling to end the stigma surrounding mental health.

“I am excited to bring Dam Worth It to our school, many athletes and students struggle with mental health due to the increased pressure of their social life, school, performance, etc” said Humboldt State Track and Field Student-Athlete and Humboldt State Branch Dam Worth It Chair Grace Kasberger. “My team and I are here to end the stigma surrounding mental health. We will make it a priority to let people know it is okay to not be okay. We will achieve this by sharing and listening to stories, in hopes that others reach out and share their stories as well and get the help they need.”
