Dark thoughts can creep up on us anytime. You are not alone with this. Since the death of Avicii, there has been of a wave of people gaining the courage to speak up and seek help for their mental health. Mental illness is becoming more and more public every day, especially in our music world. Some of our favorite artists like Demi Lovato, Illenium, Ekali, Elohim, Autograf, and Two Feet have revealed through social media they have dealt with depression, anxiety, or suicide in their lives. 

Aside from using social media as an outlet for help, there are numerous other resources you can utilize if you are feeling suicidal or any other harmful mental state.
