It's been less than 24 hours since we've learned of the tragic passing of Huntress frontwoman Jill Janus. She was only 43 years old. As the news spread throughout the rock community, her friends and peers have posted touching tributes to the singer. One thing was certain – she was loved by many. Janus made no secret of her mental illness and her pain seemed to have gotten the best of her.

If you or a loved one is feeling distressed, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. There is always somebody there to talk to you.

I don’t know what to say. I can’t believe it. A mixture of anger and sadness and panic and grief washes over and drowns me every time someone decides to leave us. Jill – thank you so much for being such a sweetheart, for your creativity and support and for all of your gifts that are on display all around my home and have been since the day we met. I KNOW it’s difficult and draining to be alive sometimes, that mental illness (i really think we need a new term for this) is an uphill battle for those suffering and those around them. We do NOT all live life the same way. To some, every day is Sisyphean. Please try to go out of your way to be kind to one another; go out of your way to send a text or call someone when you think of them; make a point of doing simple gestures to improve someone’s day. Doyle and I were just talking about Jill and her pup this week as we looked at some pendants she gave me. I should have called her. 💔

It is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to one of our peers. Jill Janus, has died today. Jill was very open about her struggles with mental health and addiction. Now, more than ever, spanning across Every age group, the suicide rate is extremely high. I’d like to take a moment to state again how important it is to talk about mental health, and remind all of you out there battling demons that you are not alone. I have to navigate my own dark labyrinth and I turn to music and writing for my lifeline. I want to encourage you to keep searching for Your lifeline, something that makes You happy. It doesn’t matter if no one gets it but you…that’s ok! We need to Stop trying to live up to expectations that society places in front of us to make us feel Unworthy of love, beauty and success. We need to stop comparing ourselves to others. We need to stop trying to be “normal”. And we need to stop being quiet about our mental wellbeing. Asking for help doesn’t mean your broken. And if you don’t know how to ask for help that’s ok too, those of us who have a shoulder will let you lean on it! We are All in this life together. For those of you with the ability to lend a hand or and ear. DO IT! We have a responsibility to help each other, cuz everything we say, do and touch affects the whole race. We are all connected. And I’d also like to address how careful We need to be with prescription medications that doctors and people that we trust give us to try to fix us. Some side effects of these meds rewire your brain, to where even if you wouldn’t normally have suicidal thoughts, your brain actually starts thinking that it is logical…all due to meds. Please be careful my loves! To Jill, My sister of scream, I hope wherever you are you have found the peace that you couldn’t here. My deepest sympathy’s go out to Jill’s Family and her band Huntress during this time.
