    Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps is opening up about his mental health struggles, admitting that the pandemic and quarantine have been the 'most difficult time' in his life.

    The 34-year-old was one of a dozen participants in Yahoo Life's Reset Your Mind event on May 20, and in a video he recorded at home, he got candid about times in his past when he's broken down and even felt suicidal.

    But the pandemic has presented a new set of struggles, and he's gone through some of 'the darkest moments' ever — but he also shared how he is coping and getting through the tough times.

    'I can say this has been the most difficult time for myself to go through,' the athlete admitted during the event, which also included Serena Williams, Hilaria Baldwin, Mayim Bialik, Jewel, Deepak Chopra, Kevin Love, Jillian Michaels, Shailene Woodley.

    'I’ve gone through some of, probably the darkest moments, like continuous darkest moments that I've gone through. They've gone on week stretches and it's scary.' 

    In the past, he said, he's had 'breakdowns,' finding himself in a 'funk' that he would fall into for a few days.

    But the spread of COVID-19 has presented new stresses.

    'This time is probably the most stressful time we've all gone through,' he said. 'Really not knowing what to expect, when it's gonna end, when we're gonna be able to go back to normal.'

    In particular, he is distressed by rising suicide rates, and especially stories he's read about those fighting COVID-19 on the front lines who've taken their own lives. 

    'It breaks my heart every single time I read a story about an athlete or a celebrity or just somebody fighting COVID who takes their own life,' he said.
