Before we dive into the heady mix that is Arcade Fire’s “Creature Comfort”, let’s do some check in.
One of the most common themes I hear on the radio is mental health, or the lack thereof.
There’s a lot of songs about addiction, suicide, and a general malaise about whether we’re good enough as human beings.
This is especially aimed at teens and young kids.
The trend is alarming. The truth is very real for many families and youth that I meet every week who are struggling with mental health and addiction. If you or someone you know finds yourself in the throws of that struggle,
please, please, please make use of these contacts:
Talk to your parents.
Talk to me.
Talk to a guidance counselor or a teacher or a friend.
