DJ Stephen ‘tWitch Boss’ death triggers social media mental health check

DJ ‘tWitch’ from the Ellen DeGeneres Show shocks fans with his passing due to a self-inflicted gunshot on December 13, 2022.


Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss was found dead at a motel in Los Angeles not far from his home. He leaves behind his wife Allison Holker Boss and their three children who are positive that they will honor his memory everyday


According to NBC News, social media was flooded with tributes to him including those from Ellen herself, Paula Abdul, and Jada Pinkett-Smith. 


Following their posts that honored his legacy, several stars highlighted the importance of checking in on loved ones often because one can never know what a person is going through behind closed doors.


Just a few days before he was found dead, he can be seen dancing on social media with his wife and kids. On his wife’s Instagram page, posts show that they had just celebrated their wedding anniversary.


The National Institute of Mental Health stated that suicide was the 12th leading cause of death for the year 2020, and that there were more than 45 thousand deaths caused by suicide in America. 


Data shows that suicide rates have had a steady increase since 2000 but have dropped over the last three years. There are many organizations and hotlines that help inform and support individuals who struggle with suicidal thoughts.


Suicide Prevention Services of America is part of the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. Their goal is to “save lives and restore hope through prevention, intervention and postvention, using education, advocacy and collaboration.”

Not only do they help victims but they also help people who may know someone who is struggling with suicidal thoughts. They offer three different training programs for people who just want to learn more about suicide and do what they can to support their loved ones.


There are many other websites and organizations on the Suicide Prevention Resource Center website where people of all different backgrounds and situations are able to find help and support.


If you or someone you know is struggling with suicide, dial the Suicide Prevention Hotline number 988. It’s available 24 hours of the week.


Check on the people you love and the people around you because you never know what they could be thinking about or what they are going through.
