We have officially launched our debut charity single, “Words” which is written and performed by Josh “Smiiffy” Smith and Peter Tay who have lived experience of mental ill health and use music as a creative way to express how they felt during periods of illness.

The charity song will help raise much needed funds to ensure the charity can continue providing vital services and support people who are suffering with a range of mental illnesses.

The Kaleidoscope Plus Group, Chief Executive, Monica Shafaq, believes it is a fantastic song and hopes everybody can get behind and support it.

She said: “We’re delighted to have launched our Charity single “Words,” which aims to raise awareness of how someone with a mental health condition can feel.

“The lyrics are very powerful and show how someone can feel during difficult times, but hopefully also shows that there is help and support out there and that no one should feel alone”

1 in 4 people will suffer from mental ill health during their lifetime and Monica went on to say: “A combination of rap and pop music was used to show that mental ill health is indiscriminate and can affect any one of us.

iTunes top 40 artist, Josh “Smiiffy” Smith who is passionate about putting an end to suicide rates is thrilled to have finally finished the charity song and couldn’t wait for it to be released.

He said: “It’s great to be able to write and produce a song about my own personal experiences and I hope it can help others in a positive manner having had a mental health diagnosis myself.”
