I was really inspired by this article about Hunter Schafer’s journey with depression and her creative outlet through art. It’s so important to remember that it’s okay to not be okay, and it’s also okay to find ways to work through our emotions in a healthy way. I’m so glad that Hunter is able to use art as an outlet to help her cope with her depression. It’s also really cool that she is using her platform to bring awareness to mental health and to destigmatize it. We need more celebrities to be open about their mental health journeys so that it can encourage others to speak up and seek help.
It’s really commendable that Hunter chose to open up about her depression and the ways she personally deal with it—she is being a voice for those who are too scared or can’t find the words to express themselves. Her use of art to work through her emotions in a healthy way is so creative and inspiring. Mental health awareness is crucial, especially now when mental health issues are on the rise due to current life circumstances. It’s refreshing to see more and more celebrities use their platform as a medium to bring light to such an important topic.
