Mental health is silently becoming a major crisis. To put it in perspective, someone takes their own life every 40 seconds. For teens, suicide is the second leading cause of death in the U.S.
We’ve had the great honor of working with an organization that’s doing something about it. Speaks Out is a movement dedicated to ending the silence, or stigma, around depression, anxiety, and mental illness. This is one of the first videos we’ve created. The goal is to get people—all of us—to be more open about what’s really going on in our lives. The brilliant cast of Hamilton even explains how. #myposttruth #speaksout
