As part of its Erasing the Stigma Campaign, Didi Hirsch earlier this month launched its STIGMA Handwashing Challenge on social media at #ErasingTheStigma and #StoppingTheSpread to highlight the importance of erasing stigma as people struggle with mental health challenges during the COVID-19 crisis.

Didi Hirsch has posted videos of its 2020 Erasing the Stigma Awards honorees and other supporters, including Alex Boyé and Alex Freeman, participating in the challenge on its website.

Alex Boyé has shared the stage with many notable artists including, Jay-Z, Tim McGraw, George Michael, Missy Elliott, Justin Timberlake to name a few.

Boyé has raised money for many causes by way of his music through his message of positivity and perseverance in his lyrics. His single, “Bend Not Break” was written in support of suicide prevention. 

Boyé is a dedicated, longtime supporter of Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services and is a recipient of Didi Hirsch’s 2019 Mental Health Ambassador Award for his work in erasing the stigma around mental illness, substance use and suicide and has performed at Didi Hirsch’s annual Alive & Running 5K for Suicide Prevention.
ALEX FREEMAN, a 13-year-old singer/songwriter/acting sensation who has been compared to a younger Taylor Swift, will also perform at the concert.

Throughout the COVID-19 crisis, Didi Hirsch has continued to make services accessible via telemedicine and teletherapy.

We also have on-site services at our three community-based clinics and all of our residential treatment centers.

In addition, we have kept our Suicide Prevention Center open and continue to operate our 24/7 Suicide Crisis Line and Disaster Distress Helpline.

Calls regarding the coronavirus increased from 1,800 in March to over 2,800 in April.

Coronavirus callers’ top concerns are anxiety/stress and health issues, but financial concerns also weigh on them, and suicide was mentioned by 20%.
