On Thursday, February 17, HANC High School students were visited by former NBA player Mr. Michael Sweetney. Mike is currently the Assistant Coach for Yeshiva University’s men’s basketball team.

Mike shared his own personal journey through the NBA, his mental health, and his courageous road to getting support. We can learn so many valuable lessons from Mr. Sweetney: the importance of mental health and his ongoing mission to break the stigma that still surrounds it. As Mike shared, “If your mind isn’t right, your body will follow. Students enjoyed his kind nature and witty anecdotes. We thank Mr. Sweetney for joining us and passing on these powerful messages.

Thank you to the HANC Counseling Department for arranging Mr. Sweetney’s visit.
