Courage and Vulnerability: Lady Vol swimmer shares mental health journey


Lady Vol swimming and diving senior Kaitlin Harty’s favorite quote comes from a friendly neighbor in a red sweater – Mister Rogers.

“Anything that’s human is mentionable, and anything that is mentionable can be more manageable. When we can talk about our feelings, they become less overwhelming, less upsetting, and less scary. The people we trust with that important talk can help us know that we are not alone.”

“It basically sums up what I believe, the more that you talk about something and the more you get into depth about the things, the more you understand what’s happening,” Harty said.
