A year ago, musician Bill Bell accessed Unison's Counselling & Health Solutions services after a friend urged him to reach out for help. On April 1st, 2019 Bill shared his story at the SOCAN Awards to raise awareness of mental health in the music industry, and to tell others it's okay to ask for help. 

Watch his full story below, and donate today, so we can keep helping those who make the music happen. 

 

"One year ago on this very day I had a nervous breakdown... and it was not an April Fool's joke. The pressures of touring, raising a family, trying to keep food on the table and the bills paid while tackling my sobriety all took its toll.

That’s when I did the best thing for myself. I asked for help.

Unison saves lives. I know this, because they helped save mine."
