Mind/Game: The Unquiet Journey of Chamique Holdsclaw, by two-time Academy-Award nominated filmmaker Rick Goldsmith, tells the story of the “female Michael Jordan," from traumatic childhood to NCAA champion and WNBA superstar; through debilitating depression and near suicide. Holdsclaw's journey reveals the courage behind her mental health advocacy and the hardships of her ongoing recovery, providing a window on the challenges and stigma of mental illness, one of the last social taboos in America.
Mind/Game is a story of hope and inspiration that provides a realistic picture of life with mental illness, common ground for conversation and a blueprint for moving forward. In the spirit of a true champion, Chamique demonstrates that life doesn’t end with a diagnosis: challenges can be overcome and recovery is within reach.
Chamique's willingness to speak out about her experiences make this a refreshingly honest film about the stigma of mental illness in America. There is a campaign on Kickstarter designed to raise enough money to get this film made and spread its impact in the sports world, among youth, and beyond.
