Whitney Woerz hopes to help erase the stigma around discussing mental health in America. Her song 'Ghost Story' was written for "an internet friend i've never met who was struggling deeply with depression." She told Billboard.
Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S. 44,193 Americans die by suicide each year. For every suicide, there are 25 attempts.
With the help of Liz Garbus, the director of the below video for 'Ghost Story,' they brought in brave men and women to tell their stories to bring awareness about Mental Health.
On March 3rd, we are throwing a benefit concert for Suicide Prevention and Mental Health Awareness. It's called Live. Life. Love. Taking place at Marathon Music Works, Fitz & The Tantrums, Bea Miller, For King & Country and Tryon will all be performing. And just added is Whitney Woerz - the woman who tackled bullying and mental health in her music video 'Ghost Story' above.
Tickets are only $20 and all proceeds go to To Write Love On Her Arms.
