Famous Ibiza residents rap about mental health

DJ Fat Tony, Demi Rose and Tony Truman join ‘A Mental Session’ ahead of World Suicide Prevention Day 2020.

A wealth of the great and good from the music and entertainment industries with big Ibiza associations have come together to individually speak candidly and openly about their own personal mental health challenges in a video series.

The new series supports World Suicide Prevention Day this coming 10 September 2020.

These inspirational videos include the likes of DJ Fat Tony, O Beach co-owner Tony Truman and Ibiza-based model Demi Rose - all offer their thoughts on the potential psychological impact of the party lifestyle, together with practical advice for other sufferers and those close to them.

The six-part series, filmed on Ibiza is the brainchild of two mental health not-for-profit organisations: We are Hummingbird and PANIC LOVES COMPANY.

With mental health issues affecting a surprisingly large proportion of the world population and with the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, it's more relevant than ever to highlight this topic.

According to a survey by the Confederación Salud Mental España conducted in 2019, 6.7% of Spain's population has been affected by anxiety, with the same percentage of people suffering depression.

A full 30% of Spanish young people aged 15-29 suffered from symptoms of mental disorder during 2018-2019.
