Crisis experts applaud Biles for breaking down mental health stigma

FOX13 Tampa Bay: July 28, 2021

It is okay to not be okay.

“People right now are very overwhelmed; we’re seeing a lot more anxiety and depression,” said Dr. Wendy Rice with Rice Psychology Group.

Rice says family commitments, work responsibilities, finances; even the pandemic can also feel like the weight of the world on someone’s shoulders, and sweeping it under the rug will not make it go away.

“If you had cancer or you were sick with a significant physical illness, you wouldn’t say, oh, get over it, just give it time. You would be Johnny on the spot and you would take care of it. Mental health problems are just as serious,” Rice said.

Huffington Post: January 22, 2013
