Lzzy Hale of Halestorm has launched a social media movement to bring awareness and solidarity to those struggling with mental health. The singer invited fans and peers to share pictures of themselves with the classic metal horns hand symbol, hashtagged #RaiseYourHorns, if they’d ever struggled themselves.
The campaign comes as a response to the loss of Jill Janus, lead singer of metal band Huntress and outspoken mental health advocate. Jill Janus died by suicide at the age of 43 this past week.
“Now, more than ever, spanning across every age group, the suicide rate is extremely high. I’d like to take a moment to state again how important it is to talk about mental health, and remind all of you out there battling demons that you are not alone,” Hale shared in a heartfelt Instagram tribute.
Fellow artists have been joining in, with David Draiman of Disturbed and Ariel of Icon For Hire being a few rock artists quick to share their own selfies.
