“The suicide of friend Rick Genest, Zombie Boy, is beyond devastating,” the pop superstar wrote. “We have to work harder to change the culture, bring Mental Health to the forefront and erase the stigma that we can’t talk about it. If you are suffering, call a friend or family today. We must save each other.”

“Science tells us that it takes 21 days to form a habit; if you are suffering from Mental Health issue, I beckon for today to be your first day or a continuation of the work you’ve been doing. Reach out if you’re in pain, and if you know someone who is, reach out to them too,” she continued.

Genest would have been 33 years old next Tuesday.
