Chris Stapleton’s New Video Takes a Serious Look at Depression

CHRIS STAPLETON’s “Fire Away video is very intense.  It’s a mini-movie that follows a young woman’s battle with depression, and even though her husband does everything he can to help, she ends up committing suicide.

Chris plays the bartender and he only has a minor role.  The husband is played by Ben Foster, whom you may know as Angel from “X-Men:  The Last Stand”Margarita Levieva is the wife.  She plays Gina on “The Blacklist”.

Chris is hoping the video will bring attention to mental health awareness.
In fact, it’s structured on the five signs of a potential mental health condition:
*Personality change
*agitation
*withdrawal
*poor self-care
*hopelessness.

Heavy stuff, but it’s real.  He’s also partnered with The Campaign to Change Direction, which focuses on mental health issues.  The video ends with a link to their website, ChangeDirection.org.
