As many celebrities are speaking out about mental health and encouraging their fans not to fear seeking treatment if needed, Billie Eilish recently shared a mental health public service announcement that has gone viral.
Much of Billie’s music is deep, dark, and speaks to those who may not feel they fit in perfectly in the world. This may prove to give Billie’s message more impact as she may reach people who truly need to hear the message that it is okay to take care of your mental health.
Billie Eilish stated the following in her public service announcement.
“I think when people hear, ‘Remember to take care of your mental health,’ they think that everyone else is, and that is not at all accurate. You know, for me I’m trying to learn still to make sure that I stay OK. It doesn’t make you weak to ask for help. It doesn’t,” she adds. “It doesn’t make you weak to ask for a friend to go to a therapist. It shouldn’t make you feel weak to ask anyone for help. And you should be able to ask anyone for help, everyone has to help someone if they need it. You know, starting that conversation, you don’t have to make it super serious right away, you know, you say, ‘How are you feeling? Like, are you OK?’”
