Simone Biles

As you may or may not have heard, Simone Biles has withdrawn from the Individual All-Round because of Mental Health issues . I applaud Simone for putting her mental health first. I think that its hard for some people to admit when they are struggling mentally. Mental Health shouldn’t be ignored. I feel like sometimes mental health is often ignored and put to the side. Your health comes first and foremost, You can’t do what you need to do or help others if you aren’t taking care of yourself. I can’t imagine how difficult it was to come to that decision for Simone .I wish Simone nothing but the best and she is in my thoughts and prayers.
