Michael Phelps/Instagram Michael Phelps Says Therapy 'Saved' Him During His Darkest Moment: 'I Didn't Want to Be Alive' Phelps has dedicated himself to mental health and told PEOPLE last summer that it is a family-wide effort to be well. "They talk about their emotions," Phelps said of his sons. "It gives me a lot of hope. I just want them to be as prepared as they can be." Michael Phelps/Instagram The boys are also growing up learning to be compassionate about the mental health of others, including their dad. "We don't hide from emotions. We teach them that daddy or mommy is having a moment and we need to either give them space or ask if they want a hug. And that's taught them they have permission for their feelings to be heard too." And in those moments when a hug is welcome, "it just makes me melt," Phelps said. "It makes me go to the ground instantly. I absolutely adore being around them."
