Wednesday, October 7, 2020 by Tai Moses
This Saturday, Oct. 10, is World Mental Health Day. Putting aside the fact that the world definitely needs more than one day devoted to mental health, a livestreamed musical event produced by the nonprofit Hi, How Are You Project and American Campus Communities aims to provide support and comfort for those in need. Featuring “relevant original songs from a variety of artists including Jeff Tweedy, Lucius, Tunde Adebimpe, Bully, Kate Davis, Molly Burch, and Sabrina Ellis + Mobley,” the event also includes “general tips for mental well-being in these trying times.” View the trailer for more details. “The aim of the livestream is to bring awareness and information to those who might be struggling with mental health impacted by the various stressors at play in our world, and the organizations are especially hopeful this music and message will reach college students everywhere to remind them they’re not alone nor without resources,” according to the news release. 7 p.m, Saturday, Oct. 10, on Qello.
