Chris Daughtry is advocating for mental health resources after revealing the cause of his 25-year-old daughter Hannah Price's death.

In November, the rock singer postponed the rest of his band's Dearly Beloved Tour after news broke of Price's "unexpected death." In a Wednesday statement, Daughtry and his wife Deanna shared that authorities ruled their daughter’s cause of death a suicide while "under the influence of Narcotics" adding there was no foul play.

Chris and Deanna said in the statement: "From a young age, Hannah struggled with mental illness and was in and out of therapy and treatment centers. As Hannah got older, she struggled to find her footing and began using drugs."

"We did everything we could to support her and get her the help she needed to recover from these tragedies and get her life back on track," the statement added. "We had just recently made plans with Hannah for her to seek further treatment and move closer to the family."

Daughtry added a list of free and confidential resources including The Trevor Project, Bring Change to Mind and The National Domestic Violence Hotline to encourage others to seek help if experiencing mental health, abuse or addiction problems.

"Hannah was a generous and loving person who wanted more for herself and others. She will forever be in the hearts and minds of those of us who love her," Chris and Deanna Daughtry wrote.
