Seether was in Bangor, Friday, May 9, in anticipation of the Rise Above Festival at the Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion on Saturday, May 10. They were at Bull Moose signing autographs and promoting SAVE.
The mission of SAVE is to prevent suicide through public awareness and education, reduce stigma and serve as a resource to those touched by suicide.
Brain illnesses such as depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia or other mood or anxiety disorders when left untreated, unfortunately may result in suicide. The brain as an organ can get sick, just like other organs in the body.
SAVE is committed to educating the general public about depressive brain illnesses, the symptoms, possible causes and the need for professional assessment and treatment. By educating the general public about these illnesses, treatment is encouraged, and the stigma associated with suicide and brain illnesses is reduced or removed.
