NFL selects Centerstone to provide counseling services

The National Football League has selected a local and long-established not-for-profit mental health services company to provide counseling services to players and their families.

Centerstone, based in Nashville, is now one of two partner organizations for the NFL’s Life Line, a free, 24-hour confidential crisis counseling service available to current and former NFL players, coaches, team and league staff, and their family members.

The NFL Life Line is part of the NFL’s Total Wellness initiative focused on holistic approaches to health and wellness for those affiliated with the NFL, according to a statement released today by Centerstone officials.

“Centerstone is honored to have our Crisis Call Center be selected as a partner for the NFL Life Line,” said Becky Stoll, Centerstone’s vice president for crisis disaster management.

The Mental Health Association of New York City will work with Centerstone in the effort and is the other “partner organization” the NFL selected.
