See MHA-NYC’s Shari Sinwelski in Panel About “1-800-273-8255” Music Video
On Tuesday, August 30, Shari Sinwelski, Associate Project Director for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, gave an introduction to a screening of the “1-800-273-8255” music video and participated in a Q&A panel about the video and suicide prevention afterwards. The screening and panel were hosted by HipHopDX. Shari was joined on the panel by the cast of the music video and members of the LGBTQ community. The screening and panel took place on the heels of Logic’s performance of the song during the MTV Video Music Awards, where he shared the stage with 50 suicide attempt and loss survivors. The song is named after the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, and both the song and video share a story of an individual in suicidal crisis that finds hope.
