students reporti ining mental hh issues. we focused on eating disorders because they are said to be the deadliest of all mental health diseases. when she is on the volleyball court, she is in control. ask a biology major the cal senior knows how her body works. but sarah said it was a lesson outside the classroom that showed her how it doesn't. >> i hit rock bottom pretty much. >> reporter: sarah developed an eating disorder during her freshman year at uc davis. >> was it an obsession? >> 100%, yeah. >> reporter: she left to seek treatment off the court. after a year away, she made a full recovery and resumed her volleyball. that is where she came to believe that disordered eating is a problem everywhere with athletes. >> since being at cal, i have met 20 or 30 people that fall in
the category. >> she said that part of it stems from what prompts an eating disorder. >> when we do body composition testing and they pass out a sheet with everyone's body fat percentage. they are not trying trigger the disorders. their intentions are positive, but why do it? >> reporter: the ncaa does not require schools to establish protocol or training to educate students or staff about eating disorders. >> if my friend has an eating disorder, i don't know what to do. or who to go to. >> reporter: we reviewed eating disorder policies for schools across the state. and we found colleges like uc san diego have strict guidelines on how to identify malnourished athletes. cal guidelines similarly discourage teams from emphasizing weight and stressing that measuring body fat is to
improve performance. and warning that extreme dieting can be a precurser to eating disorders. some have a broad policy that some staff never read. one coach said that i don't have a rekz collection of seeing one. the doctor is the first chief medical officer at the ncaa, he is in charge of promoting student health. he said that when he started the job in 2013, student athletes were clear about their biggest concern. >> they said, we get it. concussions are important. please make mental health your priority. >> does that surprise you? >> what surprised me is how the student athletes voiced that. and every time i make a campus visit, i have made probably well over 100, i always meet with the student athletes on campus and every place that i have gone, i am hearing that. >> he has a task force to
spotlight the mental health issues and search for solutions. >> disordered eating and move to eating disorder, that will kill more people every year than concussion. that will lead to disability in a way that concussion won't. >> the last time that the ncaa surveyed student athletes about eating disorders was in 1999, the study revealed that 1/3 of the athletes are at risk for some kind of eating disorder. they provided a manuel for addressing mental health best practices. it has sports and medical groups and it's not required for colleges to follow. >> reporter: do you think it should be mandatory. >> yes. >> reporter: why doesn't ncaa require this of schools? >> well, that is a question i asked too, and my job as chief medical officer is to help the membership make informed decisions. so, i'm working on that. >> we don't have coaches talk
with athletes about their weight. about dieting. they are not to make comments about their bodies. or their weight. >> reporter: indiana university psychologist ron thompson works his athletic department to increase the focus on performance rather than weight. he spent the past 30 years traveling to schools across the country to share that message. >> when i speak to coach's groups, first thing i tell them, you have the power and influence to either promote or prevent eating disorders. >> reporter: thompson believed that the program he put in place in indiana allows the department to identify and refer athletes for treatment every year and it should happen at all schools. >> it's not like you have to reinvent the wheel. it's not that hard. sn >> reporter: now, after getting her degree from cal, she is hoping to help to create a tighter safety net to catch athletes at risk. >> if you are that competitive
person that wants to win in all areas of life, we are not saying not to do that. go win all areas of life absolutely. but make sure mental health is one of them. >> reporter: this is our second report following up on a story we first aired in february to see that investigation and more information on how to treat eating disorders go to our website. we will continue to follow this issue. >> okay, thanks, vicki. if you have a tip for our investigative unit, call us or e-mail us. okay, we are burning the midnight hour. >> it is late. >> the midnight oil. >> either one. we have a great forecast as we go throughout tomorrow. temperatures 60s to 90s. let's look at the micro climate weather. you will see in san jose, after temperatures in the low 80s specifically 81 in san jose, we are currently cooling off to 61 and we will see 50s as we begin
