Billie Eilish urges fans to ‘seize the awkward’ in mental health PSA

The Seize The Awkward campaign aims to offer advice and resources for people who want to help a friend that is going through anxiety or depression. Billie opened up about helping friends and mental health struggles in an emotional new video for Seize The Awkward.

"You say, "How are you feeling?' Ask somebody, 'Yeah I'm good". "It doesn't make you weak to ask for help", she explains.

"I think when people hear, 'Remember to take care of your mental health, ' they think that everyone else is, and that's not at all accurate". It doesn't. It doesn't make you weak to ask for a friend to go to a therapist [.] You should be able to ask anyone for help.

She also spoke about tending to her own mental health, saying that ultimately, she's just doing what she can: "I'm just dealing with it how I'm dealing with it and I'm trying my best". In a video, obtained by HotNewHipHop, Eilish lets people know that it isn't the end of the world, and that help is always right around the corner. "Are you okay?'" she said.

The "Ocean Eyes" singer told fans to keep their ears open and listen to each other. The 17-year-old recently released her debut album, WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? Songs about being depressed or suicidal or completely just against-yourself - some adults think that's bad, but I feel that seeing that someone else feels just as frightful as you do is a comfort.

"Even if it's just a little more comfort, that can really mean a lot to someone", she added.

Billie previously shared her struggle with depression and night terrors during an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music's Beats 1 radio, and confessed her battle with mental health has been a lifelong challenge.
