Talking about mental health is so important. Its something that we don’t talk about enough and therefore (in my opinion) furthering the stigma of shame that people feel when they have a diagnosed or undiagnosed mental illness.
One person that we love, Lili Reinhart, is very open about mental health. She doesn’t shy away from hard conversations around mental health or talking about her own mental health.
“I’ve struggled with depression and anxiety for over a decade but lately it’s been harder than usual,” she captioned a video of her cuddling up with her pup. “This little guy has been my reason for getting out of bed most days.”
“There are angels everywhere. Look out for them and thank them for sticking with you on your journey,” she added in the video.
We’re thankful that Lili has Milo and thankful that she doesn’t back away from talking about the hard subjects. She’s definitely helping to break the stigma surrounding mental illness and taking care of your mental health.
And for that she’ll always be a hero in our books.
