Alanis Morissette has shared a new song, Rest, in honour of Mental Health Action Day.

The Canadian-American singer/songwriter first debuted the track live at 2017's Linkin Park And Friends: Celebrate Life In Honor Of Chester Bennington tribute concert, but has now unveiled the official version.

"Today is #MentalHealthAction Day…" Alanis says. "I'm sharing a song entitled Rest written specifically about those of us who struggle with depression and anxiety, isolation, suicidal ideation and the profound despair that mental illness can plunge us into. Go to to learn how you can help support yourself and others today and every day."

Before performing Rest for the first time in 2017, the musician told the Linkin Park And Friends attendees (via Loudwire): "There's been a lot of vilification of people with depression and addiction and being troubled and being in the public eye and being made fun of for the challenges that we as a community of people with notoriety have gone through. It's an extremely isolating, challenging journey to go through, and so for me I just want to offer empathy for people in the public eye and to all of you here tonight, and everyone on the planet who is grieving."
