Today Sound Mind Live announces Come Together: Mental Health Music Festival, a virtual music festival to be held on October 8, 2020 in celebration of World Mental Health Day (Oct. 10). The benefit concert will be hosted by Jordan Carlos and features performances from Smith & Myers, Jason Isbell, Kiiara, American Authors, Jade Bird, Yola, Shamir, Son Little, and more.
The National Alliance on Mental Illness of New York City is a founding partner of this event and AbbVie is acting as a presenting partner.
“Now is the time to break down walls of stigma surrounding mental health and elevate awareness of mental health resources when support is more needed than ever,” said Sound Mind Live Director Chris Bullard. “This is the most important World Mental Health Day of our lifetime. We have experienced global collective grief like never before. Despite this, we can still come together through the power of music to heal these wounds, find hope, and support one another as we move on to more positive horizons in the future.”
Experts from organizations including Mental Health America, MusiCares®, and the National Alliance On Mental Health For New York City will provide valuable information on virtual mental health resources, support programs, and best practices for self-care. The event will be streamed live on Thursday, October 8, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT via the Relix YouTube Channel in support of the cause.
