Gone are the days when we were stuck with a comparatively nanoscopic 1000 songs - likely on repeat.

Let’s take a look at how the world feels about this.

Historically, mental health has been seen as something that should be swept discreetly under the proverbial carpet. Today, mental health remains an enigma to many people. Countless stigmas around it tend to drive those affected even closer to the deep end. These stigmas need to be demolished and safe environments need to be created that are nothing but supportive and understanding for those affected.
