Train draws attention for teen suicide prevention in new video

This is in honor of May, which is “Mental Health Awareness Month,” and their music video helps raise awareness for teen suicide; moreover, it serves as a call-to-action for viewers to help prevent more lives from ending too soon.

Train’s music video may be seen below:

In a press statement, Train front-man Pat Monahan noted that “Give It All” is an important song to him, especially since it deals with the deep losses in his life, which is something that other people have experienced as well. This project was produced by SoulPancake, and the band wanted to make a video that would inspire and empower people. It was directed by SoulPancake’s Bayan Joonam, and Chris Koser, the latter of which served as Director of Photography and it was filmed in Seattle, Washington. “With the help of SoulPancake, we want to be a voice for those who are struggling, to those who have pressed through and those who are healing,” Monahan said in the press release.

Their music video features two teenage dancers Israel “Izzy” Harris and Ashleigh Mitchell, and they incorporated the beauty of dance and art together, in an effort to deliver a powerful message about loss, healing and letting go. The lotus flower is symbolic of the idea of something beautiful and pure that is rising from the murky waters.
