“Selena Gomez, once the most followed star on Instagram and now an artist who uses her voice to raise awareness about mental health, is a month shy of turning 29. Recently, in a conversation with Vogue Australia, the singer opened up about her mental health journey and shared that she has studied Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT). “I’ve studied DBT. I’ve been to four treatment centres. I think in mental health, I never understood the stigma until I went to my first treatment centre because that was years ago,” she was quoted as saying.”
