Simone Biles pulling out of the Olympic team finals for mental health reasons is a reminder to us all that even the greatest of all time (and on the biggest stage!) needs to take a step back. Proud of her leadership and self awareness!
Simone Biles’ legacy will be one marked by strength, courage, and grace. Thank you,
@Simone_Biles, for your vulnerability in prioritizing mental AND physical health. #MentalHealthMatters https://twitter.com/nytimes/status/1420040670845227009 …
Simone Biles put her mental health first. That's strength. Anyone that tries to say differently can fuck off into the sun.
This is why I'll continue to try to help destigmatize mental health issues. Mental health IS physical health.
