Cooper Noriega has been forthright about his mental health issues.
Cooper announced four days before his death that he would create a mental health Discord server. “If you’re serious about getting your emotions out, or whatever, come join,” he said in a video. “I would like to use the influence I’ve been given to create a space built on spreading awareness and normalizing talking about mental illness,” he wrote in a separate Instagram post, where many people are now mourning his death. One of the many things I’ve learned while battling addiction is that surrounded by negative people only serves to bring you down.”

Cooper’s parents, Treva Noriega and Harold Noriega, as well as his sister Parker Noriega, are all still alive. TrevasBeachWear, his mother’s company, sells beachwear online. His father, on the other hand, is a Laguna Beach-area real estate agent. Cooper’s sister works as a personal stylist and shopper. No one from the family has spoken out about the incident as of yet, but MEAWW will keep you updated.
A GoFundMe page has been set up to assist the family with funeral expenses, and the page reveals that his Discord network quickly grew to over 10,000 users. The page has so far raised $1204 toward its $20,000 goal as of the time of writing this article. “Modeling, becoming a real estate agent, and having his own mental health rehab/clothing line were among Cooper’s many ambitions. “His ultimate goal was to start/have his own mental health clothing line, open a rehab center, and spread awareness and help to people of all ages all over the world,” according to the fund raiser.
