The Campaign to Change Direction, launched in 2015 by Give an Hour, is designed to change the conversation around mental health and emotional well-being. An essential aspect of this effort has been support from cultural icons and leaders from the world of entertainment – including music.
Music has a unique role for those who are experiencing emotional suffering and for the process of healing and recovery. It has the ability to affect the human spirit in a fundamental way. The contributions and the passion of musicians has been a vital component of our effort to change the culture of mental health in America and bring these conversations to a larger audience.
Below are some artists who are using their voice to amplify our message and spread the word about the Campaign to Change Direction.
