Her site includes links to organizations, helplines, and other resources for her fans
Megan Thee Stallion, one of the most popular female artists today, has launched a mental health website called “Bad B——s Have Bad Days Too.” The 27-year-old musician references her current single “Anxiety” in the title of the website. The news was shared on Twitter by a fan named Shea Jordan Smith, a senior digital political strategist. Smith wrote, “Megan @theestallion created a website that compiles a list of diverse mental health resources and is sending it out to her fans and followers.” The message also included a note from Megan, “Hotties! You know how much mental health means to me, so I created a hub with resources that can help when you might need a hand. Head to badbitcheshavebaddaystoo.com now and check it out. Love y’all so much–@theestallion.”
Megan has been open about her mental health struggles. In the song “Anxiety,” she writes, “They keep saying’ I should get help/ But I don’t even know what I need/ They keep sayin’ speak your truth/ And at the same time say they don’t believe.”
The website features links to free therapy organizations, like the Center for Interactive Mental Health Solutions, iPrevail, and the National Alliance on Mental Illness. It also includes hotline and text lines, like the National Crisis Text Line, the Suicide & Crisis Lifeline, and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration National Helpline. Visitors can also find resource directories for organizations that support Black women and LGBTQ+ community members.
Megan Thee Stallion is one of many celebrities who have focused their attention on mental health resources lately. Selena Gomez also founded Wondermind this year, a startup focused on “mental fitness,” promoting routines to maintain mental health. Mental health awareness has arguably never been stronger, and celebrities opening up about their struggles has encouraged many to seek help for their issues.
