Lyricist and mental health advocate Selena Gomez vows to “empower young people” with the new Mental Health Action Forum.

Gomez spoke of her desire to cater to the world’s mental health needs at the first-ever Mental Health Youth Action Forum. In collaboration with the Rare Impact Fund.

The forum is being hosted in collaboration with the Biden-Harris Administration and is a “personal mission” for the Grammy award-winning star.

“As an advocate for mental health, I am thrilled to join forces,” the singer was quoted telling People magazine.

In her speech, she also explained her intention for the Fund and explained, “the goal of destigmatizing mental health through shaping positive conversations about self-acceptance and mental well-being.”

“I have a long-standing passion for mental health advocacy and education, which is why I created Rare Beauty and the Rare Impact Fund.”

Before concluding she added, “It's a personal mission to continue this important work and empower young people to address their mental health.”
