Avicii’s family launches Tim Bergling Foundation to focus on mental health and suicide prevention
Nearly a year after his death, Avicii‘s family seeks to help others and spread awareness about mental illness with the establishment of the Tim Bergling Foundation.
In a March 26 release, Bergling’s family announced that the newly established foundation “will initially focus on supporting people and organizations working in the field of mental illness and suicide prevention.” The foundation will also be active in climate change issues, development assistance, endangered species, and nature conservation.
“[Bergling] wanted to make a difference,” the statement notes. “Starting a foundation in his name is our way to honor his memory and continue to act in his spirit.”
