Artists and musicians struggling with addiction or mental illness have an avenue for help via Foundation 45, which now is offering a weekly group meeting in Oak Cliff.
The foundation was created in 2011, following the suicides of two young musicians, Frankie Campagna and Adam Carter of the Dallas band Spector 45.
“We are here in honor of Frankie, Adam and the dozens more of artists, musicians and creative souls the arts community has lost to suicide,” the nonprofit’s mission statement says. “Like Frankie and Adam, Foundation 45 recognizes that musicians, artists and creative types are often at a higher risk for issues with mental health and addiction.”
Foundation 45 offers weekly group meetings led by licensed professional counselors at the Common Desk in Deep Ellum. Those are at 2 p.m. Sundays and 7 p.m. Mondays. And they just added a meeting at the Common Desk on West Davis. It’s every Thursday at 7 p.m.
