16-year-old sings for suicide awareness and Mission 22

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KFVS) – A 16-year-old initially from Jackson, Mo., is singing for suicide awareness and assisting a veteran company with gathering contributions with Objective 22.

Lizzi Scott, 16, presently resides in Englewood, Fl., where she began singing at organizations to raise suicide awareness and particularly for veterans and active soldiers.

“Mission 22 is one of the things I care most about is veteran suicide awareness,” Scott stated. “When I’m singing, I open up with the National Anthem and then I close it with Hallelujah.”

She stated she has a great deal of soldiers, previous or present, in her life that she’s understood that have actually passed away by suicide or that have psychological health problems.

“I see more and more people struggle with suicide and depression and everything that goes along with that, especially in and out of military,” Scott stated. “I just have a soft spot.”

Scott stated she herself has actually had a hard time with anxiety and stress and anxiety, and in turn, provides her inspiration to spread out awareness to assist others.

“It’s coming up, but July 4th of 2020 was the day I got admitted to a hospital because I was struggling really bad with suicide,” she stated.

After she left the healthcare facility, she stated that things needed to alter which’s when she relied on music.

She even gathers contributions for Objective 22 as she visits throughout numerous states singing tunes.

Objective 22 supports the veteran neighborhood with 3 primary programs; veteran treatment programs, memorials and neighborhood social effect. Objective 22 offers treatment programs to veterans for Post-Traumatic Tension, Distressing Brain Injury and other problems they may be dealing with.

“I never thought I would be where I am today and singing for the people I am singing for,” Scott stated. “The biggest thing is we wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for the soldiers and everybody who has given their lives or seen other people give their lives so we can be free. We wouldn’t be standing out here today if they weren’t able to do that for us. I’m tearing up. It just means so much to me.”

She wished to thank all the veterans and active who are providing their all for us.

“No matter what you go through in life, there’s always something you can turn to and that’s what music is to me,” Scott stated.
