Kehlani’s motivational speech about mental illness

In what is one of, if not, the first public appearance since her suicide attempt, Kehlani spoke out about mental illness with Mental Health Week just underway too. She even referenced her own experiences, which unfortunately is plural. Video below. Continued props to Kehlani for coming out of this and spreading this message:

[Suicide] is something that so many young people are dealing with,” Kehlani said. “And so many young people slip under the rug. Please don’t try it. Don’t do it… It wasn’t a first time thing, and that’s not okay…for anyone. Not for the people around you, not for the people that love you, not the people that care about you.
