Trevor Guthrie premieres the video for his single “Wanted.” The dark, but moving visuals explore the twists and turns of mental illness and the impact it has had on Trevor’s life. Good for Trevor. This is exactly the kind of thing we need as we further the message that mental illness needs to come out of the shadows.
“Depression isn’t something that someone gets rescued from. You or I can’t ‘save’ someone who is suffering. What we can do is be there for that person and support them,” Guthrie says. “We tried to capture that essence. The imagery is meant to convey my willingness to enter into her darkness, to make sure she knows that she is not alone and that I will be there for her for every step of her journey to recovery.”
Have a look. And go Trevor. This is exactly what organizations like Team 55 and the CMHA are talking about. We have to bring depression and mental illness out of the shadows – and be there for each other.
