A fantastic initiative featuring the likes of Illy, Mathas and Make Them Suffer.
Mental Health is something we can always talk about more, days like R U OKAY? are great examples of reaching out to people who can help but it's also something that can be talked about for the other 364 days of the year. Music Feedback are currently in the midst of a series of conversations called Let's Talk About It with artists like Illy, Mathas and more about mental health. As the chats are titled 'Lets Talk About It' they don't aim to find the answer but discuss mental health with musicians.
This series a great example of how feeling depressed happens on a regular basis. And we should feel comfortable talking with someone about it. You shouldn't feel alone, you shouldn't feel like you can't share it with someone, you should feel like you can talk about it.
