von TRAINED | Vom 2022-05-24

Having witnessed domestic abuse as a child, Raven Saunders got strong with the hopes of protecting her family. Her newly developed power also revealed her athletic talent, and the ability to become one of the best shot-putters in the world. But no matter how many victories she amassed, Raven’s trauma was unrelenting and lead to bouts of severe depression and suicidal ideation. In bravely sharing the nuances of her story with Dr. Shairi Turner, Crisis Text Line's Chief Medical Officer, and examining the moment that saved her own life, Raven advocates for more transparency in discussing mental health and shows why she’s becoming one of the most compelling voices in sports talking about mental health today.
