The organizers hope to continue the meeting beyond this month. “The big goal is to integrate mental health care providers into the music industry and open up this conversation as a whole,” said Quibrado Jimenez. “The reality is that most people are dealing with some of the heaviest mental health issues right now – both artists and the people who work with them – now we wanted to address that, since most people don’t have access to a therapist.”
Last week’s discussion, which attracted about 80 viewers, included 200 of the 80’s, including Kay Henderson and Colors Brandon Piano.
