The Weight of Gold: Olympians, Mental Health, and Advocacy

Date TBA

Gold medals. Worldwide exposure. The chance to go toe-to-toe with the world's elite athletes. The Olympics offer a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to compete at the highest possible level. But what happens after the cameras stop rolling? Join three Olympic greats - Sasha Cohen, Jeremy Bloom, and Apollo Ohno- as they share with us the widespread mental health issues among Olympians, and why they chose to speak out. Is the stigma around mental health truly dissipating? Are today's athletes experiencing a different reality after the spotlight fades? Moderated by Palo Santo's Daniel Goldberg
