Avicii's Family Establishes Foundation to Raise Mental Health Awareness

Almost one year after the Swedish DJ Avicii was found dead from a suspected suicide, his family announced the establishment of a foundation carrying his name.

The Tim Bergling Foundation will aim to raise awareness for a variety of issues, notably those related to mental health and suicide prevention.

"Tim wanted to make a difference," his family said in a statement.

"Starting a foundation in his name is our way to honour his memory and continue to act in his spirit."

Bergling, who was better known as Avicii, was only 28 years old when he was found dead in Oman on April 20, 2018.
