(Bloomberg) -- The cast of Apple Inc.’s hit series “Ted Lasso” is heading to the White House on Monday for an event to raise mental-health awareness.

President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden will host Jason Sudeikis and other stars of the Emmy-award-winning Apple TV+ show, which been praised for its depictions of the realities of managing mental health issues, including trauma, low self-esteem and anxiety.

The group will discuss an issue Biden has made central as a part of his “Unity Agenda,” a slate of priorities the president believes Democrats and Republicans can work on across party lines.

“The President has made addressing the mental health crisis a core pillar of his Unity Agenda. His strategy is focused on training more providers, making care more affordable and accessible, and creating healthier and safer communities, including online,” the White House said in its guidance, citing expanded resources for young people exposed to violence and funds to help states transition to the 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline.

In the show, Sudeikis plays the American coach of a fictional English soccer team near London who suffers from panic attacks. Athletes are particularly vulnerable to experience mental health challenges, with approximately 35% of professional athletes reporting experiencing depression, eating disorders, burnout or anxiety, according to the American College of Sports Medicine.
