About

ABOUT:

The Hidden Opponent (THO) was founded in 2019 by Victoria Garrick, former Division I athlete and PAC-12 Champion who was a four year starter on the University of Southern California Women's Volleyball team. THO is named after Garrick's 2017 TEDxTalk, which details her personal battle with depression and anxiety, and the mental health crisis facing athletes around the world.

The Hidden Opponent was endorsed and supported by the late Kobe Bryant, who listed it as a resource in his 2020 novel, "Geese Are Never Swans," and now has over 800 student-athlete ambassadors, "Campus Captains," on over 500 different campuses around the world.
