Nearly a year after withdrawing from the French Open to prioritize her mental health, Naomi Osaka is doing her part to continue raising awareness and destigmatize mental health care.
Osaka, 23, recently spoke to FOX Business about her own mental health journey since she first broke her silence in May 2021.
"After speaking up, my view on expressing the need for a break or space or help really changed," Osaka said. "Speaking up allowed me such freedom and a sense of relief, and the outpouring from others about their own struggles made me feel less alone."
Osaka sparked a firestorm last year when she announced she was going to skip her press conferences for the French Open, citing mental health concerns.
