Hayley Williams Shares Message For World Suicide Prevention Day

Hayley Williams shared a message via Twitter for World Suicide Prevention Day.

“yesterday was #WorldSuicidePreventionDay. really i just wanna say that when my mind was super dark and hopeless, there was a part of me that felt safe being cynical & shut down. im trying to get healthier now… and it’s a lifestyle shift. sometimes it feels uncomfortable…

and i don’t always do it well… but i hope that if you struggle with darkness that you will try and remember to let yourself feel joy when it comes. im trying too. sometimes i feel like i probably look less “cool” or i worry that i’m somehow faking it.

but! i try hard to call out and recognize joy when i feel it, or even when i see it on my friends. thankful for any chance to feel a genuine smile… not only on my face but deeper than that. if you feel darkness, i hope you’ll wait for joy. it will come again and it is worth it.”

Neck Deep/Beartooth On Suicide Prevention Awareness

Hope For The Day have released a video on Suicide Prevention awareness.

The video features members of both bands from Beartooth and Neck Deep.


Ben Barlow says in the video:

“Neck Deep’s message and Hope For The Day’s message are so similar that they go hand-in-hand.

“Kids sometimes say that last year or two years ago I was in a really rough spot, but I found you guys and Hope For The Day.

“So I feel like there’s some good that we can do, as a band. Anyone with a platform’s duty is to do something positive with it.”


Taylor Lumley added, “We got involved as soon as we could.

“We came away to bridge our message as a group with an organisation that’s trying to help find solutions for people.”

I think in today’s world by just being on stage, band’s are showing all the range of emotions. This being that vulnerability, what made Chester Bennington iconic was sharing the experiences of his life in song. Music has its tricky ways of showing what life is capable of and with every great record, every great song has the power to provide this prevention and as a community, nobody’s ever alone.

Linkin Park Fans Creating Suicide Prevention Campaign.

In the wake of the death of the death of Linkin Park frontman, Chester Bennington, fans of the band have been coming together and associated with 10 Year Association to help raise funds for a campaign for suicide prevention. Here’s the link to the campaign and more on S.A.V.E on their official website.

It shouldn’t be an option though. If anyone has these thoughts, please go talk to someone because you’re robbing the world of your potential and you could possibly inspire someone one day. Even if it’s just one person, that’s all the reason to not take your own life. Please just talk to someone, anyone because it’s so much better than the alternative.
