Liv Morgan Wants You To 'Seize The Awkward' For Mental Health Awareness Month Campaign

The Ad Council, The JED Foundation, and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention have come together to start the "Seize The Awkward" campaign, which focuses on de-stigmatizing the awkwardness of discussing mental health issues with friends and family. WWE Women's Tag Team Champion Liv Morgan was featured in a recent "Seize The Awkward" PSA, advocating for building a strong support system. 


"My friends and family support me by hearing me complain, yell, cry," Morgan explained. "Just having an open and safe place to vent my feelings and just know that have my best interests at heart. Young Liv Morgan kept every single thing in and never expressed her emotions. People would think I was happy all the time and I was the exact opposite. So I would tell her 'Express yourself. You can trust people and let people know how you're feeling.'"

Morgan is not the only wrestler that has been open about their mental health struggles, as recently AEW's Bryan Danielson spoke about his own battles with depression, and how it forced the former WWE Champion to miss out on important events in his life. Morgan's WWE colleague Bianca Belair has also been open about mental health recently, specifically hoping to be an example of overcoming mental health struggles for young Black women, an example she felt she didn't have growing up.
