While COVID-19 has caused a lot of stress, mental health has been an ongoing issue and talking point, and someone who knows about it all too well is Juice Wrld's mother.

Before Juice's death, he spoke about his mental health struggles in his music, and on-going drug addiction, which ultimately killed him

Yesterday, we celebrated World Mental Health Day, and Juice WRLD's mom, Carmella Wallace, announced a new website for the organization Live Free 999 fund and penned an open letter regarding the loss of her son.

“Jarad [Juice Wrld] and I often had frank discussions about his struggles with addiction, anxiety, and depression. I think he felt comfortable being honest with me because I never judged him. I recognized that what Jarad was dealing with was a disease and I know he truly wanted to be free from the demons that tormented him. As a parent, I believed early on and supported Jarad having access to counseling. I encouraged him to always share his feelings.

I have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of love following the loss of my son. His loving spirit which is communicated through his music has touched so many people. I launched Live Free 999 so that perhaps his death could mean something for other mothers whose sons and daughters are dealing with the same kinds of issues that my son struggled with.”

Rest in peace, Juice Wrld.
