Scott Helmer’s entire mission of using his story and music to make a difference was born after making mistakes in his own life, facing time in prison and being seconds away from committing suicide.
In 2008 as the world economy was spiraling out of control, Scott Helmer sat alone in his car on a deserted mountain road in Northern Arizona with a gun in his mouth, ready to take his own life.
In the seconds before pulling the trigger Helmer cried out to God for help and said, "I don’t want to do this. If you help me through this I won’t give up, will deal with the consequences of my actions and use all of this bad stuff to help others and to make a difference so that no one else has to go through what I am going through right now."
Helmer then put the gun down, decided to never give up and took responsibility for his actions. Determined to keep his promise, Helmer then picked up his guitar and began a mission that continues to this day; using his talents and first love of music to give back and spread the message that there is always hope and that suicide is never the answer, regardless of your mistakes.
