I recently performed at a Montana high school and was amazed by the experience. There were nearly 600 students in the audience in addition to staff and teachers. I’ve never had a more attentive audience; they were totally in tune with every word I spoke and every song I sang. Their school counselor messaged me the next day saying, “We have had a flood of students coming into our office telling us that ‘if Jason DeShaw can talk about his depression, then I can talk about mine.’ These were kids reaching out for help that no one knew was suffering.” We are all in this together. We all play a part. I am so blessed to play mine.
