Ben Pearce will talk about mental illness at the House of Commons

A rare appearance at the heart of UK politics

Ben Pearce will deliver a speech about his struggle with mental health issues at the House of Commons.

The DJ and producer is set to speak at Westminster about his mental illness which coincided with his sudden rise to fame. Pearce, who returned earlier this year with his ‘Ascension’ EP series, will appear at the House of Commons as part of SING4SANE's Big Sing in Parliament - a project run by singer/songwriter Melissa James.

The music producer will describe how rising profile saw him face a demanding schedule which left him with severe anxiety. Pearce would have panic attacks before major stage appearances - this eventually spiralled into depression. His decision to take some time away from the dance music community in late 2016 allowed him space to reflect.

The event is not open to the public but you find out more about Melissa James and SING4SANE here.
