Serena Ryder’s new album The Art of Falling Apart invites listeners to join her mental wellness journey, helping us understand the importance of sitting with the uncomfortable moments and the wisdom in their messages. But what many don’t know is that the album is based on an eponymous keynote speech Ryder wrote in 2019, which she’s shared with organizations and at events across the country. When Ryder was struggling with her worst mental health challenges, she felt like nobody understood her, and she wrote this speech to show others that they’re not alone. It chronicles her journey as performing artist and tells the strategies she’s learned to not only survive, but thrive. In an effort to make these messages more accessible to everyone, Ryder developed a condensed, animated version of the speech, which you can watch below.
