Launched by friends and family of Daron Richardson, a 14-year-old girl who took her life in 2010, the D.I.F.D. program aims to help young people cope with mental health issues and “reach out for help without fear or shame.” It’s a vision Carrie Underwood and her husband, Mike Fisher, share, and the couple recently filmed a public service announcement in support of the initiative.

“We just wanted to take a minute to tell you that you are beautiful, and you are special, and you are loved,” Carrie says in the video, addressing struggling youth.

Mike, a professional hockey player who collaborated last year on an inspirational Christian children’s book, urges teens not to let bullying, peer pressure or other troubles leave them feeling hopeless.

“Remember, you’re not alone,” he says. “There’s always a way.”

“Talk to somebody,” Carrie adds. “There are so many people around you that can help. Your parents, friends, school teachers or church members are there to listen to you. You’re worth so much more to them, and to God. So don’t keep it all in.”
