Athletes across the world continue to open up about their own mental health journeys. 

Denver Broncos wide receiver KJ Hamler admitted to having a pretty tough time, but thankfully, he's gotten through it and is empowering people on the other side.

Hamler, who tore his ACL last season, also dealt with some struggles in his personal life, losing a loved one.

The former Penn State star admitted to having suicidal thoughts at one point.

Good on Hamler for being so open and vulnerable. He will surely help others facing similar thoughts. 

Everyone should be rooting for the Broncos wideout moving forward.
