Musician/actor Kid Cudi recently shared his battle with suicidal thoughts:
“Really my mission statement since day one […] all I wanted to do was help kids not feel alone, and stop committing suicide,” he told Arsenio Hall. “I dealt with suicide for the past five years. There wasn’t a week or a day that didn’t go by where I was like ‘You know, I wanna check out.’ I know what that feels like. I know it comes from loneliness. I know it come from not having self-worth, not loving yourself. […] Kids don’t have music that can coach them and give them that guidance.”
Today Cudi is a strong advocate for helping depressed and suicidal youth through the power of music. We are so thrilled that he will be performing at our 2014 Erasing the Stigma Leadership Awards ceremony.
