Taj Paxton, Executive Producer of Logo Documentary Films said,  “Chamique has a bravery that goes beyond the basketball court.  Mind/Game not only provides a gripping character study of a female athlete who refuses to give up, but also gives those living with mental illness and their families the inspiration and courage to navigate their own journeys.”
