“The concept for the video was to highlight mental health and the way it makes people uncomfortable, especially when you admit going to get treatment. I wanted to make people feel un-easy when they watch the video, because that is the way people with mental health problems feel in the public eye. As you may know I am a huge advocate for mental health because I suffer from it. As an artist, my goal with everything I create is to make people think and feel deeper. So naturally with this video I did that. The Song ‘Saved Myself’ is about how I felt coming out of treatment. I had no support system and I had to go back into the real world with myself holding my own hand. I quite literally ‘Saved Myself’. People were scared to come close to me when I got out. Assuming I was crazy, or fragile. It was a very dark time for me, and I had to be there for myself. I haven’t had the easiest life, and this is just another chapter to add to my musical journey which I’m excited to share with everyone.” – Courtney Paige Nelson
