“We’re thrilled to once again unite with our listeners for a moving ‘We Can Survive’ show,” said Michael Martin, Senior Vice President of Programming and Music Initiatives, Audacy. “This year especially, we understand the importance of the struggles of mental health and we’re thankful to the artists who are participating in a one-of-a-kind evening. I’m proud of the job that Audacy is doing in using its voice to bring people together in support of a vital issue.”

This show continues Audacy’s commitment to normalizing the struggles of mental health coupled with the previously announced I’m Listening special, a live national broadcast bringing together artists, athletes, medical specialists and others with intimate conversations about mental health through authentic, open dialogue led by some of the nation’s top influencers.

“Everyone has a role to play in the fight to stop suicide,” said Robert Gebbia, CEO, American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. “That’s why we are excited to partner with Audacy to engage the music industry and their fans in our suicide prevention work. Music provides a unique opportunity to promote connections and to encourage life-saving conversations about caring for our own mental health and the mental health of those we care about, which will save lives.”

Established in 1987, AFSP is a voluntary health organization that gives those affected by suicide a nationwide community empowered by research, education and advocacy to take action against this leading cause of death. The AFSP funds scientific research, supports survivors of suicide loss and continues to educate the public as well as advocate for public policies in mental health and suicide prevention.
