Shawn Mendes opens up about anxiety
International pop star Shawn Mendes has opened up about his anxiety, after he released the song "In My Blood." He has been particularly upfront about how the mental illness has affected his music. In A new interview with Wonderland, he shared his thoughts on using therapy as a treatment.
Shawn explains that "Sometimes it’s not about seeking help and getting a therapist...Just talking to friends and family and talking to people, becoming more open and vulnerable with everything that’s going on in my life, it’s really hard at first, and with the public it’s hard at first, but ultimately it made things easier for me.”
We really admire his courage to speak up about the mental health condition, and think he makes a good point, that you should seek the treatment that works for you, and that doesn't necessarily have to be therapy.
