“We are excited to be teaming up with Demi Lovato and Marshmello on this project to break the stigma around mental health on World Suicide Prevention Day,” Hope for the Day founder and CEO Jonny Boucher wrote on Instagram. 

Lovato has also shared her experience with depression and her struggle with suicidal thoughts.

"Since a young age I’ve dealt with suicidal thoughts and depression. I’ve been very vocal in raising the awareness of mental health because it is possible to see the light when you start the work on yourself. I’m living proof that you never have to give into those thoughts. I’ve had many days where I’ve struggled but please let this song be an anthem to anyone who needs it right now," she wrote on Instagram.

Marshmello has encouraged people struggling with suicide and depression to speak out. 

"Suicide prevention starts with a conversation we're not having with our mental health due to stigma. the first step to breaking that silence is dispelling stigmas of fear, judgement, and shame about our internal experiences. we achieve that by proclaiming it’s #OKNotToBeOK," he wrote on Instagram.
