Selena Gomez’s Struggles With Lupus and Mental Health
Selena Gomez has been quite vocal and active about mental health issues as she already had a public battle with lupus, requiring a kidney transplant which she got from one of her best friends Francia Raisa. Then came what she calls the “psychotic break” that forced her to cancel her tour. The Disney alum sought treatment and received a behavioral health diagnosis: bipolar disorder which the singer revealed to have had in 2020 including anxiety, and depression. In an interview with WSJ. Magazine in January 2020 the Lose You to Love Me singer said:
“I found out I do suffer from mental health issues. And, honestly, that was such a relief, I realized that there was a way to get help and to find people that you trust. I got on the right medication, and my life has been completely changed.”
The Who Says singer has been continuously working after addressing her lupus and mental issues. Gomez used her platforms to raise awareness about emotional health concerns and hosted conversations with experts to work on projects that shed light on various psychological health concerns, especially among the young population. Selena Gomez aims to raise funds and sensitivity to emphasize that mental health challenges should be significantly acknowledged and discussed openly.
