Selena Gomez’s New Venture: Wondermind, A New Platform For Mental Health
Selena Gomez has launched an exclusive mental health platform called Wondermind on April 4th.
The 29 year old singer and actor is determined to help people by launching a new platform that will be dedicated to spreading awareness and helping those who are struggling with poor mental health.
Selena Gomez appeared on the popular American news show, “Good Morning, America” along with her mother Mandy Teefy and Daniella Pierson who spoke about Wondermind and how they have perceived a dream to normalize talking about mental health and to reach each and every person possible who feels anxious, sad, depressed or just not well mentally.
In an interview with Juju Chang, the three founding members of the Wondermind platform discussed and shared their journeys battling and surviving mental illness.
The trio talked about the platform and what it provides to the people.
Daniella Pierson, Co-found of Wondermind shared that the platform is just not just limited to the people who are diagnosed with certain mental illnesses.
The platform is a free space for anyone who is feeling anxious, sad, scared or helpless. Wondermind is not a labeled or restricted place.
She also mentioned and highlighted that Wondermind is not a replacement for a therapist.
Wondermind Founders On Their Mental Health And Contributing From Their Experiences
Selena Gomez has always been open about her mental health and depression struggles. She also came forward in 2020 revealing she has been diagnosed with bipolar condition.
The singer revealed that it was a relief learning about her mental condition and helped her connect to herself more after learning about the changes in her behaviour.
She shared how liberating the whole diagnosis phase was for her and how it helped her build a relationship with herself which she describes as the best one yet.
Teefy, the mother of Selena also opened up about her struggles with mental health.
She told that she was diagnosed with Bipolar when she was in her 20s but later learned that she was misdiagnosed and was suffering from a condition called attention deficit hyperactive disorder.
Daniella Pierson, Co-founder of Wondermind shared that she was diagnosed with OCD, obsessive compulsive disorder at the age of 21.
She proceeded to keep it private for years and could not bring up the courage to share her condition with the people.
Wondermind intends to lower the social stigma of certain mental illnesses by helping people understand them better. Pierson describes “It’s a way for people to not feel like there’s something wrong with them.”
What is Wondermind?
