Ronda Rousey Helping to Open Suicide Prevention Center

Suicide prevention is a huge issue for Ronda Rousey — both her father and grandfather took their own lives — which is why she’s so passionate about helping to open a new suicide prevention center in L.A. 

The WWE superstar — along with Melissa Rivers — held a big event Thursday outside the building where the new Didi Hirsch Suicide Prevention Center will open on Feb. 22. 

Ronda and Melissa stressed the importance of having a massive sign on the street — to inform people struggling with suicidal thoughts that there’s a place where they can go to get help. 

The big message Ronda was pushing on Thursday was eliminating the stigma surrounding mental health — so that more people feel comfortable reaching out for help. 

“My message that I would give is reach out don’t tough it out,” Ronda told TMZ Sports.

Ronda has worked with Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services for years — and was the recipient of the org’s Erasing the Stigma Leadership Award in 2014.
