Selena Gomez launches Mental Health campaign
Popular singer and actress Selena Gomez has announced the launch of a mental health media campaign called WonderMind, which kicks off next year.
The 29 y.o. star spoke about this in an interview with Entrepreneur.
The star will launch the campaign together with her mother – Hollywood producer Mandy Teefey and friend Daniella Pierson.
“Mental health is something that is very close to my heart. It is so important to have places where people can come together and understand that they’re not alone in their mental fitness journey. That’s why I’ve joined forces with @mandyteefey and @daniella_pierson to bring you @officialwondermind – Launching in 2022 ” Selena signed her post.
The campaign will feature podcasts, daily tips articles, interviews, and helpful mental health tools.
In 2018, the singer was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. But the diagnosis did not upset her, the singer admitted that she was relieved since she received clarity. Gomez talks openly about her problems in public and wants people with mental problems to talk openly about them through her campaign, without fear of judgment.
Gomez highlighted the importance of mental health, detailing the mental problems she faced, in particular, due to criticism on social media. Selena often became a target for haters, who rather rudely condemned her appearance. Due to the development of depression, Gomez even underwent treatment in a rehabilitation clinic and took a break from virtual communication.
“Would just make me feel like, Wow, um, I’m a piece of shit. And I don’t look that good and I don’t feel that good. ” shared Gomez with the source.
When Selena temporarily left Instagram, she was the most popular person on the social network in terms of the number of followers. But Gomez admits that she felt relieved after leaving the social network.
Selena now has over 273 million followers on the social network, and she continues to be one of the most popular influencers on Instagram.
