Back at the end of July, Genesis Elijah dropped the single and visual for ‘Man Down’.
Us men can find it hard to share our feelings and inner most thoughts. Genesis Elijah uses ‘Man Down’ to highlight this, mental health and raise awareness to male suicide through his lyrics and with a powerful ending to the video. (Which also reveals a surprising statistic about male suicide in the UK)
I’ve unfortunately known men who have taken their own lives. I’ve suffered with mental health issues myself and still see a psychiatric nurse once a month to get stuff off my chest and take daily medication. It doesn’t make you ‘moist’ or ‘soft’ or whatever term people wanna throw about. There’s no need to suffer in silence, reach out and talk to someone. Human’s can surprise you sometimes.
