To address the growing cases of suicide among the resettled Bhutanese in the United States, artists from across the states are gathering for a big event this weekend.

Set to be organised at Akron, Ohio, the musical event is expected to raise awareness on the mental health issues, causes and prevention of suicide and community engagement to avoid such incidents.

The event will also release a music video prepared on the theme of suicide prevention and mental health.

Druk Fusion Band, Menuka Memorial Foundation, International Institute of Akron and Rhythm Screen Creations have joined hands to host this mega event.

Around two dozen Bhutanese artists will perform at this public music event along with presentations on mental health issues by experts.
