    I shot the end talk after shooting a video really late last night, thus the glitter on my face, I tried SOOO hard to get it all off so it wouldn't distract especially given the subject manner.

    Thank you for sharing a beautiful tribute. For having such a different voice and style than Chester, you created such a beautifully unique tribute that brings so much emotion on such a different note than Chester's style.

    See now people probably look at someone like Peter Hollens and think "What would he have to be depressed about? He's got a beautiful family, an amazing gift, lots of fans, friends, etc etc." Now these same people need to replace the word "depressed" with the word.....let's say......"fibromyalgia" for sake of conversation. "Why do you have fibromyalgia? You have a nice home, family, friends, a new car, etc etc."

    What I am saying is there are still too many people around that think that mental illness is just something that people either make up or they put themselves in that state. Years ago you were either possessed by a demon or just insane and they would perform idiotic procedures on a person thinking it was helping. That and they stuck them in the mental hospital. I think there are still people in that mindset. They need to understand that it is very real and not just "in your head". Even though it's an illness that affects your mentality/brain it is also very physical (panic attacks, etc).

    We need to stop trying to get people to focus on things that aren't important like wrinkles, hair loss, etc. A lot of things like that could very well come from mental illness anyway. My point is that they try to sell us these useless products for what very well may be symptoms of a more underlying problem, like mental illness.

    I just want the world to smile.

    Thank you Peter, thank you for making his and bringing attention to mental illness. I feel with this song many people will be touched just like I was. I can't thank you enough for doing this and bringing this up. This is a beautiful cover and honestly for the duration of this song, I felt calm and at peace. I have been struggling with extreme anxiety and chronic depression. There are days that are worse than others and some days it's not as bad. This song touched me in a way I'm not likely to forget, even though the song made me cry, but thank you for making it.

    Mental health is so important... I was suffering from depression so badly 8 years ago and was curing my depression with alcohol and drugs... until I left a bar being 5 points over the legal limit, in a blizzard... well, a rabbit ran out in front of my car and I swerved to miss it and ended up wrecking my car, and suffering s traumatic brain injury... I didn't believe in God at all at the time, well, I believe that that rabbit was God, on a mission to turn me into the fighting believer I am today! And I am proudly medicated and so happy to be alive... He definitely woke me up!

    This is amazing Peter. You did this so much justice. And thank you so much for speaking out for mental illness. It's so easy to feel alone when you suffer from a mental illness. I'm sadly speaking from first hand experience. So thank you thank you thank you. I am so much better than I was even last month. And you know this I'm sure, but it never goes away. But it can get better. And you can learn how to handle it. And therapy has helped me so much and meds. Never be afraid to try meds. I know they don't work for everyone and not everyone needs them, but don't be scared to try them if you feel like you need that extra bit of help, because they do work. It takes time to get it right, but it does. Also never feel bad about not taking them if other things work for you. It makes you no less... ill to not use them. Everyone of us is different. And everyone of us heals from different things. I love you all and once again thank you so much Peter for putting this out there. Too many people shy away from mental illness. People who don't have it don't understand and I'm grateful they don't, but we that do have it need to know that there are people out there who do. And we do understand.

    This could not be a more fitting tribute to Chester as well as being worked into a beautiful message of hope and support. I can barely listen to this without crying because I know the struggle all to well. I've fought depression and suicidal thoughts through a lot of my 32 years. I've seen my husband fight it. I've stood with my friends and loved ones as they have fought. There is nothing more difficult than fighting your own demons - except fighting them alone. Much of how I got through my darkest times was with music; many of the songs I now find on your channel. And I must say how amazing and heartwarming your message at the end of this video is. Not everyone would put themselves out there like this and speak so freely and offer help to countless strangers. But this is why we love you. <3

    To anyone who reads this and feels things are too dark for you to ever see the light again just know this:
    There is always someone there who cares you.
    Things WILL get better with time.
    Your story is not over yet.

    Stay strong, chin up, and never be afraid to ask for help or to offer it where needed. One small act could entirely change someone else's day. <3

    I don't have depression, and I've never had depression. I live a pretty happy life. I have a good family, good friends, and good health. But one of my friends suffers from depression. It's nothing huge, but he is rarely happy, and he doesn't do much of the things he always thought has been so fun. He has lost most of his old friends, I am one of the few that stayed with him. I never knew that he had depression, even though I had seen that he had become less happy over the mast few months. One day, he asked me to go outside with him for a bit. Now he can be pretty annoying at times, so I thought this would not be very fun, but I said yes anyway. I was pretty surprised when he started talking. He said many times during our conversation that he felt it was good to talk to someone. I know that "talk to someone" is something that everyone says to someone with depression, but I dont really know what else to say. Now I don't know alot about depression, because I've never experienced it, but I say that the best thing could be to talk to a friend, possibly someone else who has depression. People who don't have it or have never experienced it don't know what it's like, and I'll be honest, I don't either. Many people think that they know alot about depression and how to help it, but in reality they don't. The best thing they can say to you is like "Try to cheer up" or something like that, and THAT DOES NOT HELP. While I don't know alot about it, I know that that is alot easier said than done. If you don't want to talk to someone, I don't know if this would work, but try talking to a pet or something. Prefferably a dog. While they can't understand you, it may still make you feel a bit better. Well, I'm out of words to put here, so bye! And please, try to talk to someone if you're depressed...

    my mother committed suicide about  year ago and its been really hard. but its been better even in a year there is a difference in my mental happiness. I watched people on youtube go through their own problems. it is crazy how much I can relate to them. never give up on yourself, because there is so much in this world to appreciate. anyone who doesnt see that is wrong. and needs to be reminded that wherever we go after this life, we still need to live life to the fullest. even when its not like we thought it would be. peace out! love yu all and I hope you live life lovely.

    I like the tribute, as well as all your medley songs (and just songs in general :) ), but there were times in this one where you just sounded a little off or strained and it didn't seem to flow as natrually as it does in your others? Might just be me, but love listening as always :) thank you for all the work you put into these and all the positive vibes you put out there!

    Well, I still get depressed for multiple reasons from time to time but nothing too serious, but when I was between 15 and 18 years old... it was horrible. Not a single day passed without me thinking how much I wanted to commit suicide, and actually tried it two times but, as you can tell, didn't work. My friend are the people responsable of me being alive and happy now :)

    You did a fantastic tribute, and I loved your heart-felt message. 2 yrs ago I lost my 27 yr old nephew to suicide. Most tragic day of my life, but never more so for his parents and sisters. {{HUGS}} to you for standing up and speaking out. There's always hope, if you just take the time to look for it, and reach out when you need that extra helping hand. Thank you again Peter.

    Hey guys, I just wanted to share about myself with you all. I can remember being suicidal on a daily basis from the age of 12 on for 20 years, I'm currently 54 and I'll be 55 in November. It may have even started prior to 12, but because I really have no memories prior to 12, I'm not sure. In 1987, at the age of 25 I made my first suicide attempt. Over the next 8 years I had, that I could remember to count, 17 admissions for suicide attempts. What you must understand was that I had gone to nursing school, so I KNEW how much I needed to take of any particular drug or combinations of drugs to create what should have been a HIGHLY LETHAL cocktail of drugs to cause death. Those 17 admissions don't count the times that I overdosed, laid down to sleep expecting to never wake up again. But I did. It also doesn't count the times when someone caught me and stopped me from overdosing. You also must understand that I was TRULY TRYING TO DIE! I was absolutely NOT looking for attention. All I knew was how bad I hurt, but I didn't understand why. As a teenager I worked at McDonald's and on the weekends I closed and had to help clean the store from the day and get it ready for the crew that would open the next morning. When I closed I wouldn't get home until 2 or 3 in the morning. I would sit in our den with a butcher knife and ball my eyes out because I wanted to slash my wrists so I could die. But I hurt so bad emotionally that I couldn't stand the physical pain just long enough to bleed out. I was an absolute mess. The last time I was hospitalized was in Jan 1995. It was the one "psychotic" break that I had. A switch in my brain just flipped! I was going to take all three of my kids outside and shoot them and then I was going to shoot myself. In that moment I REALLY believed that I was doing EVERYONE a favor! I look back on that moment now, and it absolutely terrifies me! I thank God everyday that He sent me intervention! All the previous hospitalizations had been between 3 weeks to 3 months long, this one . . . it was a YEAR long! At one point, I was literally on enough medication for THREE PEOPLE!!! At some point in that year I realized that the pain that I was feeling was merely temporary! I was still feeling the pain in that moment, but it did get better. At one point in 1995, sometime around October, there was a pastor that prayed over me. Say what you will, believe what you want. But it was a PIVOTAL moment in my healing process. As he walked away from me he turned from me and said that, "In a year, someone will be writing about your story, your healing!" I kind of blew it off. I mean really? Who would want to be writing about me? I'm nobody! A year later I had a chance encounter with a man named Harold Koenig. He's a geriatric psychiatrist at Duke University Medical Center in Durham NC by trade, but his life long research has been about how having a faith, any faith, Christianity, Buddhism, Islamic, etc (you get the idea) affects/effects our staying healthy, our healing when we get sick, and in fact our dying when we don't get well. How that faith or the lack of that faith helps us, or not . . . And in that chance meeting and my unintentionally overhearing a radio interview that he was doing, when his interview was over, we started talking and he told me he was writing a new book and could he have someone call me and interview me over the phone for his book. I said sure. It was MONTHS later when someone reminded me of what that pastor had told me, that in a year, we'll be writing about you. In that instant, I was absolutely flabbergasted! I had completely forgotten about that! After the book came out there was a local paper that did an interview with Dr. Koenig about his book and wrote a two page spread about it, and then there was an article written about his book in the Duke University Alumni Magazine. In both articles, out of all the HUNDREDS of people that he mentioned in his book I was the only persons story that was mentioned in both articles (local paper and alumni mag) I didn't even know that the articles had been written until I went to church one Sunday and people kept saying something about the articles. No one had told me about them. I was FLOORED!

    But the point is, I was released from the hospital in Jan of 1996, a year after being admitted. Before the end of 1996 I was completely off of ALL medications, and I've never had to be put back on them since. And believe me, I have been through a BUNCH of stuff since then that MOST people would have trouble dealing with! So, my point in sharing all of this with you is to hopefully support you and help you believe that there IS a BRIGHT LIGHT at the end of the tunnel! I can't promise that you will be healed, but I know that I could NEVER have survived these last 21 years without having a SOLID firm belief in God. In knowing that He is ALWAYS there fore me. Even when it FEELS like He's not! You have to understand that just because you believe in God, it doesn't mean that you won't ever have anymore problems, it just means that you don't have to go it alone anymore!

    If any of you feel the need to "talk" please reach out to me! I will respond as quickly as I see something from someone. I truly hope this might have been helpful and encouraging to someone. And I apologize for the length!

    Be Blessed & Much Love

    I live in Holland and I'm being treated for my depression. Some days are better than others, but I see a light at the end of the tunnel! I'm a strong person and as much of a fight this is, my family and friends show me every day that they are the reason why I fight! Whatever you do and how dark it may seem, stay strong!!! Reach out!!! It gets better!!

  • Brandi Crum
    Brandi Crum Day ago

    I've suffered without being diagnosed until 2014 with P.T.S.D, Social Anxiety, Insomnia, and borderline personality disorder, all for which I was given meds for, and though it was never put in my chart, I also have borderline manic depression which I've been having to watch extremely closely since my Mother passed away in 2015. There are days that I hear a song, catch a scent, think I hear her voice from behind me, and it effects me deeply. People don't often realize that when you lose a parent, you don't just "get over it" or bounce back quickly, that is a loss that effects you for the remainder of your life. I know because I can have days where I'm happy go lucky, and then days where I'm emotionally distant and don't want to talk, or be around people. All of this being said, my mother suffered from mental illness, and would go from extreme highs to extreme lows, and have bursts of uncontrolled rage (manic depression aka bipolar depression is what she suffered from). So these conditions are ones I'm pre-disposed to and developed as I matured because my Mom suffered from at least 1 or 2 of the handful I have been diagnosed with. Mental illness isn't a joke or something that anyone should ever turn a blind eye to. Cutting, acting out of sorts, etc are actually ways a person may be crying out for help, so we should never ignore those warning signs.

    Thank you for your comments at the end. :) I have a friend who is having issues. Grew up with a Sociopathic Narcissistic mother who taught him that anything he accomplishes is expected of him and any single mistake he makes means he isn't worth the air he breathes. We've gotten him out of the situation, but it's a daily struggle to keep him off of suicidal tendencies. I both hate and love hearing about other people going through that because while I wish they didn't have to, I love that there are ways to fight it out there and people who HAVE overcome and WILL overcome. Being ADHD and Depressed myself, it gives me hope.

    I would love to hear 'geboren um zu leben' (Unheilig, german singer) from you, it is a song about the great feel of life! There is allways a reason to go a long the ways, which life might bring us to! Suizid isn't an option and we all should lend people a helping hand if they think so!

    (an english version of this song is 'born to feel alive' from the gregorians, maybe you like this more?)

    Thank you Peter. It's a beautiful tribute. As someone who fights with mental illness - it's cost me jobs and opportunities, and while I'm now working I'm massively underemployed - it's a wonderful thing to see you as an ambassador for getting it into the open.
    To everyone out there: BIG HUGS. I still fight every day but it is an easier fight now. I've found allies and understanding in the most unexpected places, and new problems in other ones. Every day is a new day, and if I can find a way to make the next day a little bit easier to face, I do so - and if I can't, tomorrow's a new day anyway. That's not to say the wolf is ever far from the door, because it isn't, but things do get better! MORE HUGS!!!

    I've come to learn that many of those I look up to, many of the people whose lives I strive for, also suffer from depression. It makes me feel a little less lost, a little less lonely, and a little more like I can achieve the things I want to.

    Wonderful tribute.Wonderful person, thank you Mr. Hollens.

    LP helped me through very hard times and to watch Chester go was very hard. Working with him personally and seeing how positive and full of energy he was.. It was unbelievable to me when I heard the news. His music, his words had so much meaning. He always tried to care for people, he always was the one light reaching out to millions to help them through their tough times. It is so sad to see another caring and loving person succumb to mental illness. RIP Chester, love you and miss you

    Might as well give my two cents then, huh? I suffer from social and seperation anxiety. I don't do well when among people I don't know, so I cling to those i do know and follow them around.

    My mother suffers from depression and anxiety, making life very hard for her. But if you see her, she always seems so happy and peaceful.

    My brother seems to have ODD and that makes him a pain to deal with, but we keep living, dealing with our issues every day. Not easy for any of us.

    I had depression for two years and everyday during those two years all I could think about was death or killing myself. I could never smile no matter how hard I tried. As Peter said you get some good days and some bad days but depression can be cured. If anyone needs a hug or just someone to talk to I'm here :). Lots of love x

    My cousin Mathrew Haley took his life about 3 years ago. He was 38 with a wife and two kids. Both his kids were really young. Now they are in pre k and 2 grade. He wasn't about to do it sober so he drank and crash his truck. He couldn't talk to anyone about what ever the problem was and no one will no. It's sad someone so young to take their own life away and leaving those who love and care for them just disappear. Talking about problems and opening up will help.
