Why was it important for you specifically to get involved in The Global Mental Health Movement?
To me this is movement, this initiative, is something that needs to become wide spread and catch like wildfire. Being insecure in our own mental health is a thing of the past. Opening up a dialogue and breaking the stigma associated with mental health issues will save lives and change hearts. I got involved in the Global Mental Health Alliance by happenstance. Eric found a song I wrote online called “We’re All A Little Crazy” and it just flourished from there. We re-recorded the song at my label’s studio, House Studios, and have partnered up with Eric and this Alliance ever since.
What do you hope The Movement will accomplish?
As I said, I am hoping this initiative turns into a movement that lasts. A movement that changes and opens peoples minds, to a place where talking about these things isn’t negative but a normal, acceptable and everyday occurrence. I’m proud to be able to be a part of The Global Mental Health Alliance and to be able to have a song of mine mean something a little more.
