In this "Sack the Stigma" public service announcement, Dolphins defensive tackle Zach Sieler talks about the steps he takes to care for his mental health and how they're just as important as the regimen he follows to maintain his physical health.

As a professional athlete, Sieler understands the importance of maintaining both physical and mental strength. In the video, Sieler opens up about how he prioritizes his mental health and advocates for open conversations to normalize the topic.


"Through 'Sack the Stigma,' Ambetter and the Miami Dolphins defensive tackle hope to inspire others to prioritize their mental health and break down the barriers of stigma surrounding mental illness," said Chief Product President of Sunshine Health, Charlene Zein. "We appreciate Zach and his partnership on this crucial health topic. We hope his story will empower others to seek help when they need support."

In the video, Sieler also emphasizes the importance of seeking support from trusted individuals, such as teammates, coaches, psychologists and doctors. He encourages others to prioritize their mental well-being and reminds them that it's okay to ask for help.

"I want everyone to know that it's okay to talk about mental health," Sieler emphasizes. "Together, we can tackle the stigma and create a supportive environment where everyone feels comfortable seeking help."
