Like so many actors and actresses, famous singers often become overwhelmed with expectations and pressures after stepping into the spotlight, often leading them to fall into depression. Some singers, though, such as Tyler Joseph from Twenty Øne Piløts, have used music and fan encouragement as a means to slowly recover. And conversely, countless fans around the world have claimed that TØP's music has saved their lives; these fans would often turn to music rather than self-harm when they had a particularly bad day. Unfortunately, there are, of course, those artists who have passed due to mental health issues, such as Chester Bennington (and there are speculations of Avicii). Nevertheless, their music has touched so many people and helped so many suffering fans all across the world.
In your personal life, do you know anyone suffering from depression that turns to music for (almost) protection? And for yourself, even if you do not suffer from depression, are there any artists that you find particularly great for relieving the stress and sadness of a bad day?
