“I feel it’s important to be a part of this initiative in the hopes that it can reach, help and save lives.” – Nyla Rose
“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.” – Mick Foley
“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.” – Amy Dumas
“During these times of uncertainty, when many are struggling, it is inspiring to see so many in the wrestling world join together for a good cause. NAMI is grateful for the support of the community. If you or someone you know is struggling, reach out to the NAMI HelpLine at 800-950-6264 M-F, 10-10 ET. Stand with us as we are #Together4MH,” said Katrina Gay, Chief Development Officer, NAMI.
The wrestling community is incredibly close and when something happens to someone in the business, they come together. With the world rounding the curve of the COVID-19 global pandemic that resulted in social isolation, it became more apparent than ever that a bigger conversation around mental health was needed and thus, the “Tag Me In” vision was born.
