Singaporean singer-songwriter wants to promote World Mental Health Day

Posted on May 16, 2014

Sufyan is a 37-year-old singer-songwriter from Singapore living in Malaysia with an important story to tell. It's his own personal account of struggling with mental illness. Slowly but surely, he is finding his way out of the darkness - through his music and by helping others.

He wants to use his music as a vehicle for creating a better understanding of mental illness. More specifically, Sufyan wants to produce an album of original songs that will help inspire others to find inner peace and recovery from psychological problems.

Sufyan is also very committed to promoting World Mental Health Day, which will be celebrated on Oct. 10. This year's theme is "Living with Schizophrenia."

"My goal is to complete the album and begin a publicity campaign for it prior to Oct. 10 so Mental Health Day can become a part of the promotion," he said. "I think it's important that people all over the world learn about mental illness," he said.

For the album project, he needs $65,000 for musicians, backup singers, recording, mixing, mastering, CD production, distribution and marketing. To raise this capital, Supiani has launched an Indiegogo campaign that can be viewed at
