About Suicide 

Rise Above Fest was founded in 2012 by multi-platinum rockers Seether to raise awareness for suicide prevention and mental illness. The festival received its name from the song, “Rise Above This,” written by Seether member Shaun Morgan. The song was written as a message to his brother, who died by suicide in 2008 and before he had the opportunity to hear it. Seether has partnered with SAVE since 2014 to help raise awareness and prevent suicide.
