Carrie Underwood and Husband Remind Teens of Their Worth in Mental Health PSA

Carrie Underwood, Jeff Fisher

Carrie Underwood and her husband, hockey player Mike Fisher, are revered by teens across the country for their success in their respective careers. This week, the celebrity couple used that platform and took a minute to speak out for teen mental health. In support of the youth-driven organization D.I.F.D. (Do It For Daron), which works to raise awareness and get people talking about teen mental health, Underwood and Fisher appeared in a PSA reminding teens that they are highly valued and that they have hope.

“We just wanted to take a minute to tell you that you are beautiful and you are special and you are loved,” Underwood says in the clip. Finishing her sentence, her husband chimes in, “So if you’re dealing with something that seems too big for you to handle, whether it be peer pressure or bullying at school or maybe on the internet, or you’re just feeling down and out about life, remember that you’re not alone. There’s always a way.”

“Talk to somebody,” Underwood encourages. “There are so many people around you that can help. Your parents, friends, school teachers, neighbors or church members are there to listen to you. You are worth so much to them and to God, so don’t keep it all in.”

D.I.F.D. was created by the friends and family of Daron Richardson, a teen who took her own life when she was only 14. Richardson was the daughter of Luke Richardson, assistant coach for Fisher’s former hockey team, the Ottawa Senators’.

In light of the tragic incident, the organization works with young people to remind them of their value and to offer resources to help them get through tough times. View the PSA on the organization’s website to see how Underwood and Fisher are using their influence to encourage teens.
