Healing is Possible.....

"The music industry as a whole needs to genuinely make a conscious effort to look after people's physical and mental health." -  Sam Fender

"What does a safe and inclusive music industry look like to you?: Labels/management looking after mental/physical health." - She Shreds Media

"I have had bouts of situational depression and my heart was broken last year because, unknowingly, I put so much validity in the reaction of the public, and the public didn't react in the way I had expected to…which broke my heart. I was with someone recently who asked: ‘Well, don't you think that if you do too much therapy it will take away your artistic process?' And I told them: ‘The biggest lie that we've ever been sold is that we as artists have to stay in pain to create.'"- Katy Perry

"It's very important we create conversations, we take away the stigma, and that we stand up for ourselves if we're dealing with the symptoms of a mental illness." - Demi Lovato 

"There is a lot of shame attached to mental illness, but it's important that you know that there is hope and a chance for recovery." - Lady Gaga

“In the wake of the tragic, premature deaths of Avicii and Lil Peep, the music industry needs to do a better job at treating mental illness. Again, and again, there are warning signs and early cries for help that we cannot ignore....it’s not just the artists who need help, it’s the executives in the business as well. So I’m calling on every executive, manager, and artist representative with a friend, client or employee in need of help to act. Let’s come together as an industry and provide reliable health and wellness support within all circles of our business. We owe the world our best effort to avoid another tragic loss.”- Nick Jarjour
