Simone Biles' honesty during the Tokyo Olympics helped transform the way the world looks at mental health. When Access Hollywood's Scott Evans asked the athlete how fan interactions have changed since the Games, she said, "I think as a human, people respect me a lot more when they realize I'm not just entertainment, I'm human." Simone, who is partnering with the mental health app Cerebral as their Chief Impact Officer, was also joined in her interview by Cerebral CEO Kyle Robertson.
