Ignorance around a topic makes us grope in the dark and, on the contrary, it is only by informing ourselves and studying that we can deal with even the most difficult situations.
This is the case, for example, with mental health, on which you need to broaden the conversation, break down clichés, and feel that you are not alone. This is why Selena Gomez has launched a new initiative, which aims to provide as many resources as possible on the subject.
These are the resources that she had not had in the past and that, when she found them, “changed her life“.
The initiative is called #MentalHealth101 for Rare Impact (her beauty brand) and, in a post on her Instagram account, the 28-year-old artist explained that she is “very close to her heart” because she knows “firsthand how scary and lonely she is to deal with anxiety and depression alone at a young age “.
“ If I had known my mental health before– if I had been taught what my condition is at school in the same way that other subjects taught me, my journey would have been very different – continued Selena Gomez – The world must know that mental health matters. It’s as important as physical health, and I want everyone to recognize this. Not only with words, but with actions.”
He concluded with a very important message: “For anyone who is suffering now, I hope you know that you are not alone. I believe in asking for help. Having support and educating myself about mental health has changed my life and can change yours as well.”
With #MentalHealth101, Selena Gomez wants to give “the fundamentals” to start learning more about her mental health: an opportunity to take care of yourself not to be missed! Find the information on the Rare Beauty website.
