(CelebrityAccess) — Following his death in an apparent suicide last year, the family of DJ/Producer Avicii has launched a new foundation in his name.
According to Rolling Stone, the Tim Bergling Foundation will raise money for a variety of causes, including suicide prevention and supporting mental health.
As well, the foundation will also focus on other issues including climate and nature conservation, the Bergling family said in a statement.
Avicii, 28, was found dead in Oman in 2018, just two years after he announced he was stepping back from his life as a touring artist to address his mental health.
“Creating music is what makes me happy and I have gotten to know so many great people in my days of touring, seen so many amazing places and created endless of good memories,” he posted on social media at the time. “The decision I made might seem odd to some but everyone is different and for me this was the right one.”
