"You just don't talk about it."
In a game that requires you to be tuff physically having or sharing problems with fellow players doesn't happen due to male bravado.
Like a player who gets injured frequently gets labelled so too would one who has emotional - physiological ones.
They need to be sure anyone from equipment staff to player on every team can access help quickly if needed.
