Ryan and Nina Day continue push for mental health


Ryan Day’s interest in promoting mental health extends beyond its effect on his Ohio State football team.

He and his wife, Nina, have made adolescent mental health a personal project since his ascension to the head coaching job in 2019. The mental-health effects of the pandemic have only increased their passion for the issue.

“It’s something that’s at the forefront for a lot of families, a lot of people right now,” he said. “Certainly, COVID didn’t help. There was a lot of isolation and a lot of trying times for a lot of people. Now more than ever, we need to be aware of mental health.

“I think we’ve done a great job with physical health across the country, but mental health is at a crisis across the country. The second-leading killer of adolescents and teenagers is suicide. But that’s just one manifestation of it. There are a lot of manifestations of mental health, and we all need to be aware of it.”
