Noah Kahan on Being Honest About Mental Health

December 6, 2023 8m
A crash course in opening up

Since singer-songwriter Noah Kahan last joined The What Podcast, he's been all over the place. From being selected as a Shaky Knees headliner to guesting on SNL, it's been nothing but onwards and upwards for the artist. On this High Five Clip, Kahan talks with Brad, Barry, and Lord Taco ahead of his appearance at Bonnaroo 2023.

Kahan talks about how important it is to be honest about mental health, as well as how much it means to him that his songs might be able to help someone in need. In particular, he goes into the difficulties of actually opening up.

"It's like a bunch of people telling you that at the bottom of a pit of fire, there's a big cushion," he says. "You have to trust yourself to jump into it, but all you know is the fire, and all you can see is the fire, and all these people are like, 'I promise you that there's a big pillow at the bottom.' It takes a long time for people to make that fall, it takes an incredible amount of trust to tell someone how you're feeling."
