On World Mental Health Day on Monday, October 9, Imagine Dragons released the music video for “I Don’t Like Myself” from their album Mercury – Acts 1 & 2. Alongside the music video release, Imagine Dragons partnered with Crisis Text Line, encouraging fans to support the organization and their work through fundraisers available across the band’s social media platforms.
Crisis Text Line is a not-for-profit organization providing free, high-quality text-based mental health support and crisis intervention throughout the United States and Puerto Rico, in English and Spanish. The organization’s services are available 24 hours a day, every day. Those seeking support can text MUSIC to 741741 to reach a live, trained volunteer Crisis Counselor.
Said Imagine Dragons frontman Dan Reynolds: “I wrote this song at a very low point for me. I struggled quite a bit with self-love over the years. I was in a deep rut of depression and turned to music for refuge. I’ve since spent many years in therapy working on self-love. I believe therapy is the reason I am still alive today. If it’s ever a question of whether or not you should go to therapy. The answer is always yes. Stay alive.”
