Camila Cabello touches on the need to ‘heal yourself before healing the community’

Grammy award winning singer Camila Cabello recently got candid about her struggles with mental health and her desire to aid the entire community, starting with herself.

The singer spoke to People magazine's Women Changing the World issue about and revealed, "A lot of activists don't have the time or resources to take care of themselves. When you're struggling or feeling burnout, it's hard to show up for other people. You have to heal yourself before you can heal the community."

She even addressed her counseling sessions with the National Compadres Network and explained how “It created a space where I was held accountable. You get corrected, you have homework, and you learn. That's how you move forward. Now I know better so I can do better."

Plus "As I learned more about other people's experiences in the world, I was like, 'How do I help the people who are on the frontlines of dismantling systems that create oppression? And how do I bridge that with my own personal journey with mental health and healing?'"

"What all the organizations have in common is that they are helping their communities, especially marginalized groups in their communities. They all also expressed a need for these mental wellness resources."
