Henderson describes a new resource at Michigan State for former student-athletes called Alumni STATE of Mind.

  • Available to anyone who was a student-athlete at Michigan State
  • 24-hour dedicated crisis lifeline available for MSU athletic alumni managed by The Hope Desk
  • Discounted services provided anywhere in the country managed by Skywood Recovery
  • For those without insurance, Fund Recovery will work with former student-athletes to ensure quality care despite any financial challenges
