Local band “Pray For Sleep” uses music to bring attention to mental health

Local News

COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Teenagers often dream of being in a rock band, but very few find a way to make it happen.

Fewer still find a way to make it happen before high school graduation.

But at 18 and 19 years old members of the band “Pray For Sleep” are making a name for themselves due to their music and their message of “we are not alone.”

“Personally myself and the guys have dealt with depression and anxiety. And we feel it’s not talked about enough,” said Cameron Dickson with Pray For Sleep. “So we want to give a voice to those people dealing with depression, anxiety and mental or behavior health just like we have.”

Mental health is something the band feels really strongly about. The guys are urging their fans to reach out and realize that even in their darkest hours that no one should walk through life alone.

This Saturday the guys are headlining a show at the basement and they are donating 100 percent of ticket  proceeds  to the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Mental and Behavioral Health Services Unit.

On September 16 Pray For Sleep will play the Tristan Miller Music Fest.

The festival is in honor of Tristin Miller, a young music lover who took his own life. His family is now raising a scholarship in his name.
