“I am so honored that The JUNO Awards and now The Prism Prize are recognizing our video for Not Up To Me. Many young women today are suffering from physical, verbal and sexual abuse leading to severe depression and mental health issues. Whether it be from their peers, strangers, those in power or through the anonymity of social media – we often blame ourselves in silence, turning to substance abuse or other self harming behavior. We hope this video will open your eyes and remove the stigma around abuse and depression so we feel safe in having these conversations and seeking help. We hope the girls we love know we will always dive in to keep them from drowning.” To vote for “Not Up To Me” go to http://www.prismprize.com
