Gomez repeatedly emphasizes the importance of mental healthcare in addressing issues related to mental health. She stated how going to therapy made her feel heard and understood and dispelled her own misconceptions about mental health.

Gomez remarked: “I think it’s less scary when you talk about it. So that’s some sense of freedom that I gained once I did it. Sharing your emotions is great. I’m a huge advocate for therapy.

Gomez has repeatedly dabbled in enterprises that promote mental health awareness. For instance, she produced the Netflix teen drama 13 Reasons Why which explores adolescent mental health issues and suicide.

She also launched the all-inclusive beauty brand “Rare Beauty” to do away with toxic beauty standards. More recently, she founded a mental fitness company called “Wondermind” to provide mental health resources and expert-backed content (free of charge) to de-stigmatize mental health conversations.

Selena Gomez’s story shows the importance of mental health for all and that timely diagnosis of mental health conditions and the right support through recovery can go a long way in enjoying a happier, purposeful life.
