Selena Gomez, singer and Rare Beauty mogul has launched ‘Wondermind’—a multi-media platform dedicated to destigmatizing mental health and providing users with a space to share their journeys and seek tools to cope.

Selena has co-founded the site, along with her mom Mandy Teefey (mom and daughter goals) and CEO of The Newsette, Daniella Pierson, to bring ‘mental fitness’ to the masses after she expressed the lack of inclusive spaces on the web for people to talk and explore their feelings.

On the site, they say: “To us, mental fitness means creating a routine; working through your feelings to better understand your mind—with the right tools and community to support growth. It means committing to a daily practice, even when you feel out of your comfort zone (which shows it’s working!)”.

This venture seems only natural for the Lose You To Love Me singer, as she has been very open about her own struggles, even addressing mental health with her beauty line. Now she’s taken it a step further! 

In an interview with Good Morning America, the Only Murders in the Building star (yes, season 2 is on the way—yay!) said: “I really want people to be understood, seen, and heard. It's okay to not be okay."

Danielle added that Wondermind is for anyone, “with feelings, who wants to be feel understood, loved, and cared about”.

As many of us will know, mental health struggles can feel very isolating and confusing—especially after the two years we’ve all had—with things like collective trauma and burnout coming to the foreground. So a site dedicated to all things mental health could not come at a better time.

Even more so when you think of the negative impact social media can have on our wellbeing—this is something Selena knows all too well, revealing that she’s actually been off social for four years now!

Wondermind’s goal is to help users practice mental fitness, offer expert advice and open conversations where nothing is taboo and there is no judgment. The site is open to everyone, it’s completely free and you can subscribe via email and phone to receive newsletters—there’s even a podcast on the way!
