Green Bay Packers star Aaron Rodgers supports Dak Prescott speaking up on mental health.

Prescott created some serious waves when he recently spoke out about his mental state and his brother’s suicide. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

It ended up being all over the news because Skip Bayless more or less said he didn’t have any sympathy for the Cowboys quarterback.

Rodgers addressed the situation Wednesday, and said Prescott’s openness was a sign of “true courage.” You can listen to his full comments below.

Good for Rodgers for supporting Dak. For reasons I have never understood, many people in our society want to push mental health issues to the fringes and not talk about them.

It’s never made sense to me at all. Your brain is the most important part of your body. If you’re not right in your head, then you’re going to have issues.

There’s nothing wrong with admitting that things aren’t always going well. It seems like people forget that athletes are human too.

They deal with the same issues we all do, but they do it on a massive stage. Their mistakes are magnified for the world to see.

It’s not as easy as everyone might think.

Props to Rodgers and Prescott for speaking out on the importance of mental health. Never be afraid to get help if you think you need it.
