Bevolution Music presents SMASH the Stigma! our annual charity event supporting Papyrus UK to deliver awareness and prevention training, provide confidential support and suicide intervention through HOPELineUK, campaign and influence national policy, and empower young people to lead suicide prevention activities in their own communities.
In February 2016, the extreme sports world was devastated by the loss of one of its most decorated and talented individuals. Although I (Paul Bevan) did not know Dave Mirra on a personal level.. I found the news of his death extremely hard to come to terms with, having spent years of my life following his career, achievements and personal goals. In my eyes Dave was, and always will be my role model, the reason I push myself to excel in everything I pursue... He was my absolute Hero! I, as with many others, was unaware of the battles that Dave was facing. Naive to the struggle of so many people facing similar personal issues, I endeavour to raise awareness of these conditions so that others do not have to suffer feelings of shame and stigma.
Bevolution Music are continually working with 'PAPYRUS UK' to raise awareness of mental health so that others do not have to suffer feelings of shame and stigma.
