Ariana Grande has encouraged fans to openly share about their mental health struggles and to end the stigma surrounding the issue.
Grande talked about mental health and how to help others suffering from those issues in an Instagram post shared on Sunday, May 2, to mark May as Mental Health Awareness Month.
“Here’s to ending the stigma around mental health and normalizing asking for help,” Grande captioned a mini gallery of text slides about the subject. “Healing isn’t linear, fun, quick or at all easy but we are here and we’ve got to commit to making this time as healthy, peaceful and beautiful as possible. the work is so hard but we are capable and worth it. sending so much love and strength.”
In the second slide, Grande said that the only way destigmatize mental health issues is to talk about it. She said that she will be making at least one post a week throughout May about the subject.
In other slides, she shared a selection of mental health and substance abuse helplines and resources, including Black Mental Health Alliance, The Trevor Project, Veterans Crisis Line and postpartum support.
