Neck Deep singer Ben Barlow, Hope For The Day host mental health chat
Hope For The Day is doing their part to check in on people's mental health during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic through a livestreaming chat about mental health and stigmas along with Neck Deep's Ben Barlow.
CEO Jonny Boucher along with Barlow are hosting their Sip Of Hope Coffee Talk tomorrow (March 22) at 10 AM CST over on YouTube.
The mental health awareness organization's monthly podcast features "education and open forum dialogue" in regards to mental health in the music scene.
The organization focuses on proactive suicide prevention through outreach, education and action in mental health awareness through a multitude of partnerships, discussions, events and more.
Further, Pure Noise Records released a tribute album called Keep Shining On featuring the songs of Tim Landers, the guitarist/vocalist of Transit. The label donated all proceeds from the album to the organization.
The clip follows Boucher as he speaks with Neck Deep and Beartooth about making a positive impact in the music scene.
“Neck Deep's message and Hope For The Day's message are so similar that they go hand-in-hand,” says Barlow. “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,” Barlow adds.
“We got involved pretty much as soon as we could,” says Lumley of Beartooth's alliance with Hope For The Day. “For us, it became a way to bridge our message as a group with an organization that's trying to help find solutions for people.”
