Big Sean is utilizing his platform to speak on the importance of teaching children Mental Health coping skills at an early age!
In an interview on Ebro Darden’s “The Message,” the Detroit native stated, “It really needs to be just like how they teach us about STDs and sex in health class. They need to make sure they teach us about how to deal with anxiety or how to breathe properly and all of that.”
He continues, “It all should be together because it’s all connected. It’s not like the head is separate from anything, it’s all together.”
Sean recently spoke out about his own Mental Health and the obstacles he previously endured while contemplating suicide.
Sean revalued that he even had held a gun to his head in deep thought of how much money his family would receive following his death.
Thankfully he received help within his time of need by attending therapy sessions and growing a stronger relationship with God.
Sean has recently established a weekly video series, alongside his mother Myra Anderson in which she also produces; consisting of discussions and tips on how to promote mental health and wellness.
“It was actually [my mom’s] idea because she been with me throughout the whole pandemic at my crib, and she sees the stuff that I have applied to my everyday life that helps me get through and helps me stay productive, stay inspired, stay active,” said Sean to Ebro.
“Some of the stuff she’s taught me, some of the stuff I’ve learned on my own. But she was just like, ‘Yo, you gotta put people onto this, you gotta use your platform for not just music and all of that.’ She kept bugging me about it, it just made me be like, ‘Let’s just do it. Might as well just put the information out there for the people that can use it.’”
