Avicii’s family have set up a mental health foundation.

The DJ, whose real name is Tim Bergling died of apparent suicide in April 2018 and in August his family turned his website into a tribute page, so fans could share memories of him in one place.

His family have now set up The Tim Bergling Foundation and released a statement which said: “Tim wanted to make a difference — starting a foundation in his name is our way to honor his memory and continue to act in his spirit.”

The charity “will initially focus on supporting people and organizations working in the field of mental illness and suicide prevention.”

The foundation will also work to address problems such as climate change, development assistance, nature conservation and endangered species.
