Olympic Swimmer Allison Schmitt Talks Depression

Friends, here is a touching interview I had with 6 time Olympic Medalist Allison Schmitt on her battle with depression. Depression is real and can be serious and as some of you know all too well can be fatal. I am passionate about telling these stories so that we can unite to help one another get the support so many need. Allison is a huge light in the world. I am so proud and honored to have had the chance to meet her and help tell her story. Please watch, share and help celebrate Allison’s victories both in and out of the swimming pool as she heads to Rio to represent the our great country for the third time. We’ve got your back Allison. If you ask me, you are America’s Olympic darling – Rio 2016.
