Halsey has been a constant and open advocate for mental health, sharing her story and stressing that it’s “a journey, not a destination."
“One of the things for me, more so than even being able to ask for help, was recognizing the problems to begin with. Noticing the warning signs, noticing patterns, and being in touch with myself enough to know when something is wrong,” Halsey explains in the video above.
“When my body check engine light went on, instead of just ignoring the problem, being able to say, ‘this time I’m gonna take it to the shop in time before the car breaks down.’”
Mental health issues affect over 40-million Americans, with suicide being the second leading cause of death for people ages 10 to 34, regardless of race, religion, and sexual orientation.
"It's a constant, constant battle, which seems discouraging" the singer previously explained to RADIO.COM. "The one thing I like to always remind myself is, your struggle will never get better it will just always get different and you will get more equipped to handling it."
