Avicii‘s father continues to open up about his son’s mental health and hopes to make a change.


This Wednesday, CBS is dedicating most of its morning programming to a special on mental health — Stop the Stigma: A Conversation About Mental Health.” During which, Avicii’s father Klas Bergling discusses his son’s own struggle with anxiety and how it manifested over the years.

He speaks directly to fans who might be dealing with mental illness (anxiety, depression, etc.): “You have to talk about it. And you shouldn’t be afraid to ask for help.”

And, he explains the purpose behind the Tim Bergling Foundation: “Trying to get the stigma away from talking about mental illness and suicide. We hope we can be a voice through Tim. Because Tim has so many millions of fans.”

Tim Bergling aka Avicii took his own life on April 20, 2018.
