During the emotional conversation, Bizet opened up about her personal relationship with the music video and her no-brainer decision to commit to the project.
"When I heard suicide prevention, I wanted to do it right away and then I listened to the song in my car and I pulled over because it took me right back to the time when I felt exactly like that and I wish I had seen this video and heard that song and I wish I knew that phone number," Bizet said.
The actress described a time in her life when she was a high school teacher and became so depressed that she stopped going to work and completing every day activities such as showering. Bizet remembers just wishing someone would reach out to her to simply ask if she was okay, which is a big reason she wanted to get involved in Logic's '1-800' video.
"I was like, 'Somebody wrote this song, they're going to make a video about this and it's going to be out there so that people who feel like this are not going to feel ashamed about it' because when you feel like this you feel like you're crazy, you feel like you're a burden to people so you don't want to tell people. You know, can you imagine telling someone, 'I just want to die today' because that's literally how you feel you just want the hurt to stop, but you don't want to tell people because people are going to be like, 'What do you mean you want to die?,'" Bizet said. "So this video, this song, this project, this being out there, it's really great because I'm not alone and everybody knows that this is happening soI'm not going to look crazy, there's a number I can call... So after 'American Crime,' this is the best thing that has ever happened to me."
Logic boosted awareness of the National Suicide Prevention Hotline
According to Shari Sinwelski, a representative for the hotline, the lifeline had a 27 percent increase in calls on the day of the song's release, which is the second-highest call volume in the hotline's history.
And while the website has also seen an additional 100,000 visitors per month since the release, Logic's VMA performance was groundbreaking for the hotline as they saw a 50 percent increase in calls.
A few Logic fans even called the hotline expecting a radio station to answer, but stayed on the line and ended up opening up about their honest thoughts of suicide and how the song, video and counselor on the other end of the phone were able to save their life.
