In response to the teen suicide epidemic in Johnson County, the first annual You Matter Music Festival will be held on Saturday, August 11 from 5 to 11 pm at the Blue Valley High School Football stadium.
The event was inspired by Logic’s performance of the song “1-800-273-8255” at the Grammy Awards in February. The title is the number of the National Suicide Prevention Hotline.
As someone who has struggled with depression myself, I think we should focus more on mental health awareness and try to get away from it being taboo to discuss these issues. It was great to see a well-known performer use his platform to promote something good. I decided we could do something to try to help people who are struggling with depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts right in our own community.
The You Matter Music Festival will feature local high school bands and solo performers, all while promoting an uplifting message of positive mental health.
