Issues with mental health are often misunderstood by many people. It's difficult to comprehend for those who aren't effected and it's even more difficult to control for those who are. Recently, the dubstep pioneer Benga has been dropping free tracks on Soundcloud and he opened up on Twitter about how he has dealt with both bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.

Benga retired from music earlier last year when he decided he wanted to focus on starting a family. Little did the public know, he was dealing with psychological issues as well.

It's interesting to note that many who deal with these internal issues don't like to express themselves publicly about how it effects them. Once Benga decided to raise awareness, the music world exploded with support. Especially from many other early dubstep pioneers Scuba, Blackdown, Darkside and Dark Tantrums among others.
