About Robb Nash Project:

Robb Nash, who is the lead singer of the Robb Nash band, founded Robb Nash Project in 2012 to help at-risk youth who struggle with depression, bullying, self-harm, addiction, and suicide. Robb Nash suffered from major physical injuries and psychological issues after a life-threatening accident as a teenager. Once Robb recovered from issues related to anger and depression, he started up Robb Nash Project to help at-risk youth overcome the same issues he faced and conquered. Robb Nash Project reports that over 600 students have handed Robb Nash their suicide notes and he has received hundreds of razor blades from those who self-harm.

Robb Nash Project gives school presentations and concerts across Canada, designed to inspire students through music and storytelling to make positive life choices. The charity has performed 750 times in the last 6 years, reaching 1250 schools and over one million youth.
