– Alternative Press

In the wake of losing both Chester Bennington and Chris Cornell, artists have not been quiet on the issue of mental health.

This Suicide Prevention Month, artists are taking their loud voices to the airwaves to expose depression as a sickness.

“Going through something like suicide, it’s a long road,” Grohl says. “And Chris [Cornell] was such a beautiful guy—he was the sweetest person, he was so talented, he had so much to offer. It was a real shock.”

“Mental health and depression is something that people should really take seriously. There’s a stigma attached to it that’s unfortunate,” Grohl said.
