“Music is the magical voice of the universe…
If you’re sensitive enough to be feeling the pain that makes you want to get out of the world, then you are one of the people that the world needs.”

About SoS

What We Do

  • Content Creation

    Video shorts, mini documentaries, interviews and more. Our The Song That Found Me At The Right Time series – often in partnership with The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline – has been featured in Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, AfroPunk, MTV and more.
  • Therapy Fund

    We offer grants to artists and select fans in need to provide brief psychotherapy (up to 12 sessions) at no cost, with experienced and culturally competent clinicians in their area or online. We partner with specific clinical networks to increase the likelihood that participants are able to financially afford treatment if desired following the grant period.
  • Events

    Our live events bring together music and discussion surrounding mental health themes and topics, and include musicians, other artists or writers and mental health professionals, often in interactive environments. Past themes have included "inertia and depression" and how to get "un-stuck", gender identity, processing childhood trauma, and coping with pandemic-related depression and anxiety. One of these was featured by Carson Daly on The Today Show.

Watch

We invite some of our favorite musicians to share the songs that have helped them through difficult times.

988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline

On July 16, 988 will become the national three-digit number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

This marks a congressionally approved move that will not only provide greater accessibility to Americans in crisis but is expected to create a seismic cultural shift in the form of a mental health response alternative to 911. It is a direct connection to compassionate, accessible care and support for anyone experiencing mental health-related distress – whether that is thoughts of suicide, mental health or substance use crisis, or any other kind of emotional distress.

If you need suicide or mental health-related crisis support, or are worried about someone else, please call or text 1-800-273-8255 to connect with a trained crisis professional who can help.

The Loveland Foundation was established in 2018 by Rachel Cargle in response to her widely successful birthday wish fundraiser, Therapy for Black Women and Girls. Her enthusiastic social media community raised over $250,000, which made it possible for Black women and girls nationally to receive therapy support. Black women and girls deserve access to healing, and that healing will impact generations. The Loveland Foundation is the official continuation of this effort to bring opportunity and healing to communities of color, and especially to Black women and girls. Through fellowships, residency programs, listening tours, and more, ultimately we hope to contribute to both the empowerment and the liberation of the communities we serve.
