Halsey and more musicians team up for “I’m Listening” Campaign

September is a month of a lot of significance… kids returning to school, the beginning of fall and most importantly being known as Suicide Awareness Month. Each year, more than 41,000 individuals die by suicide, leaving behind their friends and family members to navigate the tragedy of loss.
