Tom Brady Tom Brady speaks at a press conference on Thursday, September 15.

It’s no secret that Tampa Bay Buccaneers star quarterback Tom Brady has been going through a lot in his life lately as he and his wife Gisele Bündchen are likely headed for divorce after the two hired divorce attorneys and Gisele recently stopped wearing her wedding ring all while serving as a high-profile NFL quarterback.

In his “Let’s Go!” podcast, Brady opened up about his incredibly stressful life and how he copes with the toll it takes on his mental health.

“Everyone has different situations in their life and children and you worry about their mental health. You worry about your parents [and] obviously yourself,” Brady said. “I think I’ve had to learn a lot of things over a long period of time in sports. I think there’s an intense amount of stress that we all deal with, and how do you relieve stress so that you’re not inflicting so much damage on yourself through kind of stress response?”

Brady revealed that over the years, he’s used therapy to deal with his mental health struggles.

“So [it’s] something I’ve always continued to try to work at, and it’s obviously a challenge for me and different forms of whether it’s physical therapy or mental therapy, all those things I’ve definitely done over the years.”

While Brady has likely dealt with these struggles throughout his entire NFL career, his career does appear to be coming to a close in the near future.
