I had the honor of talking to Ashley from Can You Hear Me at Warped Tour in Nashville. Can You Hear Me? (CYHM?) is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping teens and young adults find their voices and utilize them to effectuate positive change within their own lives and the lives of others. Knowing that music has the power to transcend barriers as well as inspire and unite, CYHM? has partnered with multiple musicians and others in the music industry to encourage teens and young adults to speak up and be heard. At CYHM.org teens have a safe online platform where they can share their stories without fear, without judgment, anonymously or not, and enter a community where teens support each other, feel heard, and have access to multiple resources. Their issues are varied and include mental health, addiction, bullying, LGBT issues, and many more.
Please visit CYHM.org to share YOUR story, as well as for more information on how you can get involved!
Remember, your voice is heard. You matter. You are loved.
