About the Event
Join the MHA and Felt Studios as we bring a novel new kind of concert to the community. On May 22nd, we will hosta virtual event featuring live music by Tyon ‘T-Lyon’ Davis and break out candid commentary on mental illness and ways to cope. T-Lyon’s music often centers around struggles with mental illness. A song entitled “Power” specifically tackles the issue of suicide. The lyrics skillfully create a hopeful, if gritty, narrative about staying positive while dealing with overbearing struggles in life: “Know that everyday the devil test me/but, see I’m living stress free/can’t let your energy affect me/I battled suicide/I’m still alive/depression tried to come get me.” This approach to thinking about and opening talking about mental struggles fits hand-in-hand with the MHA’s mission. This event aims to promote Mental Health Month. Mental Health Month is national movement to raise awareness about mental health. Each year we fight against the negative associations towards mental health, provide community support, educate the public, and advocate for policies that support people with mental illness and their families.
