Singers Mary J. Blige and Nelly Furtado have teamed up with MTV to present a series of new health shows.

Music recording artists Mary J. Blige and Nelly Furtado are teaming up for MTV's new series, dubbed "Half of Us."

"Half of Us" is a new MTV health show, during which the stars will speak openly about their own physical and mental health battles. The program, to be shown on MTV's all-day college network MTVu, is aimed at college students battling issues like depression, suicide and bipolar disorder.

Other recording artists slated to appear on the series are Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy and Max Bemis of Say Anything. They will all discuss their personal struggles with serious mental health issues in an effort to encourage college students dealing with the same issues to seek help.

"Half of Us" is part of mtvU and the Jed Foundation`s "Half of Us" campaign, designed to reduce the student suicide rate, fight the stigma of mental health on college campuses and get students the help they need.
