What Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragon did was shocking
Something he did was shocking, talking about mental health we get to know that Mental health is defined as a state of well-being in which every individual realizes his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to contribute to her or his community.
This guy Dan Reynolds halted in the middle of a concert. As he was performing his 2012 superhit “Demons”. Which explains stuff about dark phases. He emphasized on its no shame in having a mental health problem. he said “I have a therapist. It does not make me broken. It does not make me weak,” he told his fans. “There are many people out there tonight who are holding it into themselves, not talking to their friends, their parents. If available to you, a therapist — don’t hold it in, talk to somebody. You are not broken.”-Dan Reynolds.
The singer Dan himself had been a victim of depression. That’s why he is aware of the ground reality and trying to spread awareness at the best time he could do that i.e. during a concert in New York city’s Madison Square Garden. We should be aware of that Depression affects more than 15 million Americans every year and is the leading cause of disability in the U.S. for people ages 15 to 45. The median onset of depression is typically 32 years, and it occurs more often in women than in men & that is when a public figure like him take a step forward to educate people. BBC says Imagine Dragons star on depression: ‘It was losing my life or seeking help’. This guy’s one step ahead can bring a change on a scale of millions.
