    Olympic Superstar Simone Biles Mental Health Message to the World

    Olympic Superstar Simone Biles Mental Health Message to the World

    Mental health breaks are very important when you need to focus on yourself. You have probably heard that Olympic star Simone Biles dropped out of the vault and uneven bars during the 2021 Olympics for mental health reasons. And she did so without knowing what the world would think.
    Knowing when to take a mental health break can be a very important part of your mental health, but many people feel like they can't take a break.
    In this episode, I talk about why you should take a mental health break and the importance of being proactive during your break.

First time listening

Great area of interest for me as a therapist in schools for over 15 years working with developmental disabilities and mental heal kids. Also in my doctorate program for mental health policy. I am interested on getting trained teachers and staff in schools to help a growing issue for youth today.

New daily listener!

Just started this show today and it is awesome. It’s a lot of great information that can lose people’s interest in some cases but he is so genuine in how he delivers it and just pulls you in. I also find it really encouraging as someone trying to pursue a career as a behavior therapist.
