This Is Important: Punk Talks

One of the most heartwarming things that I’ve seen come from the scene is Punk Talks. Punk Talks is a project that focuses on giving musicians and industry workers free counseling. Sheridan’s got her head and her heart in the right place. You can read a brief statement from Sheridan where she introduces us to her labor of love below. 

Hello, friends! my name is Sheridan. I am a lifetime lover of punk music and am graduating in May with my Bachelor’s of Social Work. I have decided to combine my two passions and offer free therapy to punk musicians and industry workers.

Mental health is an issue in the music industry, especially in the punk scene, and those suffering with mental illness are vastly overlooked. I hope to eliminate the stigma and to help better the lives of the people who have bettered mine through their music.

For more info or to get involved, please message me or email me at punktalks@gmail.com.

you don’t have to be sad to make great music.
