Thank you to mega recording artist, Macklemore for stopping by our Wellness Zone at Z100 and signing the Keep Oregon Well Studio pledge wall! It’s an honor when progressive celebrities show their support of our work. Macklemore has been vocal on and off stage about LGBTQ rights, same-sex marriage, and fighting the stigma of homophobia in hip hop. Last year, Macklemore was a guest on former President Barak Obama’s weekly address to discuss the dangers of opioid and prescription pain killer addictions. Macklemore even went on to share stories of his own journey towards recovery.  It’s personalities like Macklemore, who share personal lived experiences to the masses, that help normalize the conversation towards prevention.

To hear more conversations about fighting the stigma of mental illness, check out previous Keep Oregon Well events. To be a Mental Health Matters advocate yourself, sign our pledge.
