Like many other folk singers of her generation, Collins was drawn to social activism. She is a representative for UNICEF and campaigns on behalf of the abolition of landmines. Following the 1992 death of her son, Clark Taylor at age 33, after a long bout with depression and substance abuse, she has also become a strong advocate of suicide prevention.
