Help Musicians launches campaign for 24/7 Mental Health Service
This week the music world was anything but ‘ numb’ with the tragic death of iconic frontman Chester Bennington which was the result of a lifetime suffering from mental health issues such as depression.
The Linkin Park frontman changed the face of the modern rock world with the band's unique blend of heavy instrumentals mixed with rap and programming influences.
Bennington’s death adds to the ever increasing number of musicians in the spotlight who become victim to the illness, prompting Help Musicians to launch the ‘ Music Minds Matter Campaign’.
The service will aim to offer ‘arm in arm’ support that will combine listening, advice and signposting along with clinical, medical, therapeutic and welfare support.
In this day and age, more so the ever mental health issues are becoming a bigger killer so it’s important we do what we can to help those around us. The fundraising platform is live now. Check it out here
