For a long time, mental health has been a topic that has been consciously ignored wherever you looked in the entertainment industry. Artists are often celebrated for pouring their heart and soul into their work and sharing extremely private matters with their audiences at times. Weirdly enough, seeing the same artists talking about their psychological struggles in public has often been somewhat of a taboo topic whereas stories about drug abuse in all its forms are so common hardly anyone even raises an eyebrow.

Time to give them the attention they deserve.
