Phelps retired after the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro as the most decorated Olympian ever, winning 28 Olympics medals.
Last month, Phelps spoke at a mental health conference in Chicago where he talked openly about his almost life-long battle with depression and anxiety and is encouraging others to get help like he did.

Phelps also said he wants to eliminate the stigma associated with mental illness.
