It was noted that pro wrestling is the first organized sports entity to create a PSA for mental health. The goal of “Tag Me In” is to normalize a conversation about mental health, rid the mental health stigma and reiterate that those affected are never alone.
“There has never been a more vital time for people who care, to offer support and raise awareness about mental health. Let’s band together to make a difference,” Foley said in a press release issued today.
Lita added, “Our jobs require the responsibility to care for our opponents in the ring, we are expanding that compassion to the personal battles we face outside the ring as well.”
