KANSAS CITY, MO — Inspired by Logic’s song on suicide prevention, and his own experience with anxiety and depression, local teenager Will Gurley knew he had to help the youth in our community. That’s why he created the free You Matter Festival to raise awareness and spark conversation about mental health issues and suicide prevention. He joins us to discuss this Saturday’s event and to give us a sneak peek musical performance.
