  • The aim of Morgan’s Message is to try to “eliminate the stigma surrounding mental health within the student-athlete community and equalize the treatment of physical and mental health in athletics. We aim to expand the dialogue on mental health by normalizing conversations, empowering those who suffer in silence, and supporting those who feel alone.”
  • Last spring, Danielle Husar created a documentary detailing UVA student-athlete’s involvement with the cause. You can watch that piece below.
