Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott opened up about dealing with depression and anxiety.

Skip Bayless said, given Prescott’s leadership position on the football team, Prescott shouldn’t have done that.

Cavaliers forward Kevin Love, who has been outspoken on mental-health issues:

What Prescott did was brave. Because, despite Love’s best efforts, there’s still a stigma on mental-health issues perpetuated by people like Bayless.

There shouldn’t be.

For all Bayless’ talk about just dealing with it, that’s exactly what Prescott did. He sought help from people, including a sports psychologist, equipped to help him. Now, Prescott sounds like he’s in a better place mentally.

Prescott also spoke about his journey to set a positive example for anyone else facing these issues.

That’s great leadership.
