American singer Selena Gomez and Mandy Teefey launched a new mental illness platform ‘Wondermind’. The main motive of the platform is to promote mental wellbeing and destigmatize mental health issues.
Official website of ‘Wondermind’:
The official website of the platform says, “No matter how down or confused you might feel, we’ve been there too. So we created a space to work it all out every day with candid conversations, physical tools, daily content, and a supportive community.”
Purpose of ‘Wondermind’:
The founding members of the platform wanted an “inclusive” place where people would be free to open up about their mental health struggles.
A statement on Wondermind’s Instagram reads, “We’ve each had our own mental health struggles, and we realized there was no inclusive, fun, and easy place where people could come together to explore, discuss, and navigate their feelings. So we created it,”
Gomez as mental health:
Gomez has been an advocate for mental health for a long time now. She had also revealed that she is suffering from bipolar disorder. The newly launched website will also host podcasts and interview celebrities about their mental wellness journeys.
n the welcome video, Gomez also says, “I’m so excited about Wondermind because I want there to be a place of people coming together and understanding that they’re not alone.”
