After following the reports regarding Naomi Osaka one thing is very obvious to me, Mental Health is still not taken seriously.
Naomi had decided not to talk to the media to protect her mental health, so she could concentrate on actually playing tennis, and was threatened by the other Grand Slam events with expulsion. It took her withdrawal from the French Open for the 'Slams' to offer their help. This is not good enough.
Naomi Osaka did the right thing. If the tournament and the various tennis organisations were not going to help her, she had to look after herself. For what it’s worth she has my full support.
My message to anyone reading this is to please take mental health seriously. Before judging anyone think about their mental health, and then think of your own.
If anyone would like help with boosting their mental health please reach out, there are many professionals ready to assist you.
Take care of each other, it’s the better way of life.
