Alabama head coach Nick Saban recorded a video shown as part of a Mental Health Awareness Seminar held on the University of Alabama campus held on Wednesday.
The video and seminar are part of an on-campus campaign at the University of Alabama called You're Not Alone, described by it's Facebook page as "a campaign aimed to raise awareness for mental health and suicide prevention."
Thank you to all who attended the Mental Health Awareness Seminar tonight! If you missed it, here is a message from Coach Saban stating the impact we can have by caring for others."Just to listen and have a presence sometimes with somebody is all they need to satisfy their loneliness and to know that someone else cares. So, let's do something to care for someone else."-Coach Nick Saban
