Welcome back to Part II of the episode with Morgan’s Message. I now sit down with Dona and Aberlee Rodgers, Morgan’s mom and twin sister. Dona and Aberlee share their own experience and what they’ve learned through their tragic loss.

In Part II of this episode you will learn:

  1. How to talk about suicide
  2. The barriers athletes face when it comes to mental health
  3. Why mental health is as important as physical health

Morgan’s Message strives to eliminate the stigma surrounding mental health within the student-athlete community and equalize the treatment of physical and mental health in athletics. They aim to expand the dialogue on mental health by normalizing conversations, empowering those who suffer in silence, and supporting those who feel alone.
