Bressie releases aid single for suicide charity

HE hasn’t had a panic attack in two years and singer Bressie is now hoping to encourage others to “speak out” about mental health like he did.

The Mullingar-born star said he’s now in a “really great place”, after suffering from anxiety since he was just 15, and has put his positive state of mind down to the remedy of regular exercise.

“I tried everything from medication to meditation and the only thing I found really works for me is exercise,” he said.

Bressie gathered 12 fellow acts of the industry to collaborative on ‘Simple Things’, an album in aid of Cycle Against Suicide.

The musicians, who included Heathers, Gavin James and Pat Byrne, joined Bressie at RTE Radio’s Studio One today to perform a number of tracks from the album, live on the Colm Hayes Show.

“Obviously we’re doing this to raise as much awareness as we can, but I’m doing it for selfish reasons too,” Bressie told the Irish Independent.

“It’s great to be surround yourself with positive people and all get together to talk about things in your life, how you’re coping and all of that.”
