PH K-Pop fans spearhead anti-suicide campaign

Several Philippine-based K-Pop group launched “With You,” a campaign aimed at helping people suffering from depression.

On December 21, six K-Pop fan bases—Carat Land Philippines (Seventeen), Wanna One PH (Wanna One), Wanna One Union PH (Wanna One), NCT PH (NCT), JBJ PH (JBJ), and KARD PH (KARD)—joined together and started the campaign with the hashtag #SaveALife. The “MoveMeant,” as they call it, was launched in light of SHINee’s Kim Jonghyun’s passing. Although it was created by K-Pop fans, non-K-Pop fans may also reach out to them. So far, the campaign offers helpline through direct messages on its Twitter account @WithYouPH.

It’s great that K-Pop fans are doing efforts to help raising awareness about mental illnesses and provide as much assistance to those who need it.

If you are from the Philippines, you may also call 804-HOPE (4673), 0917-558-HOPE (4673), or 2919 (toll-free for Globe and TM subscribers). Please remember, there is someone willing to listen to you.
