Selena Gomez, a pop star, has spoken up about her struggles with mental health and how she dealt with anxiety and depression.
In a promotional post for Rare Beauty, the singer took to Instagram with a lengthy note about her mental health problems, which began at a young age.
“I know first hand how scary and lonely it can feel to face anxiety and depression by yourself at a young age,”
“If I had learned about my mental health earlier on—been taught about my condition in school the way I was taught about other subjects—my journey could have looked very different,”
As a result, Gomez has planned to launch the Mental Health 101 project with her Rare Impact for Rare Beauty campaign, which seeks to improve mental health knowledge and care in classrooms.
“I hope that Mental Health 101 will be the stepping stones for others that I wish I had,”
