Kid Cudi - Kid Cudi Honoured For Work With Mental Illness Charity

Rapper Kid Cudi has been honoured for helping youths deal with mental illnesses.

The Day 'n' Nite hitmaker, who has struggled with his own depression issues in the past, was recognised at the Erasing the Stigma Leadership Awards in Beverly Hills, California on Thursday (24Apr14).

He shared a photo of his new accolade with his Twitter.com fans after the event, which was organised by officials at the Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services non-profit, and in the accompanying caption, he wrote, "Humbled To Receive This Award From @DidiHirsch! What An Honor! God Is Great All The Time! Blessed #erasingthestigma".

Cudi, real name Scott Mescudi, has served as Didi Hirsch's Mental Health Ambassador after opening up about his own personal troubles last year (13), when he revealed he had suffered an addiction to anti-depressant medication, which had been prescribed to help him deal with an "emotional breakdown" following a failed relationship.
