WWE star Adam Scherr (fka Braun Strowman) has launched his new mental health app Diskuss.

Scherr spoke with Lance Allan of the NBC affiliate in Milwaukee and spoke about the launch of the Diskuss app. Diskuss connects users with licensed certified therapists, counselors and life coaches 24 hours a day.

“We just launched an app called Diskuss,” Scherr said. “It’s a mental health app that offers you licensed certified professional therapists, counselors, life coaches in the palm of your hand, 24 hours a day using audio, video and text messaging services. It’s fully encrypted so that all your information (is) secure, but it gives you the skills and comfort to do it at home.

“If people want to talk to someone, we offer a free 24-hour text messaging session using the promotional code ‘Let’s discuss.’ So ‘let’s discuss’ will give you a free 24-hour trial through the text messaging service for anyone who wants to try it out if they need to contact and talk to someone. “

Scherr spoke about his own experience with mental health issues and how he coped with bullying because of his weight and a reading disability.

“You see this image I portray in real life, this outer shell, but I’m an onion,” Scherr said. “I have layers. Everyone. Everyone has layers. I suffered a lot of harassment when I was little because I was a small, fat child. A small husky child. (I) didn’t understand why and then (I) had a reading disability when I was little. , so that was something else.

“It simply came to our notice then. My family, we didn’t. So I would wear different clothes and, oh, you’re poor and they get you hooked. That’s what I think everyone should try. The unfortunate thing is that school bullying will never go away. “

Scherr said he finds motivation in people telling him he can’t do anything. He remembered how a high school teacher warned him that he would never get anywhere, so he sent that teacher a signed action figure when Mattel released his first WWE figure.

“I had teachers who told me I would never get anywhere when I was in high school,” Scherr recalled. “My first action figure I received I signed and said to that teacher, thank you for everything.

“So I had things like that and people, and that was that even today it’s one of the things that pushes me and drives me, that tells me I can’t do anything. Like, oh, da, da, da. Hi “I don’t care if I get in a small car, I agree.

With “Titan” as the ring name, Scherr is currently a free agent working in the Indies after signing with the WWE from early 2013 until he was released on June 2 last year. He noted how experiences in public and on the Internet, while in the WWE, caused social anxiety.

“There were times, even with my career, when I was in the WWE, when things weren’t going well and I started to get into my own head, because the internet and social media are constantly bothering you,” he said. dir Scherr. “You’re being attacked anyway. You go out to dinner and people chase you when you’re out here, and that’s why I started to develop social anxiety.”

Scherr is scheduled to meet with Erick RedBeard (fka Erick Rowan) for a team match against nZo and WWE Bully Ray Hall of Fame member at the XXVI event of NEW’s WrestleFest on Saturday, January 22 at Poughkeepsie, NY. He will soon be heading to Qatar to work on shows for Qatar Pro Wrestling.
