Megan Thee Stallion Launches New Mental Health Resources Website

In her song “Anxiety” off her latest album, Megan Thee Stallion let us all know that she's “a bad b*tch, and [she] got bad anxiety.” Celebrities, they're just like us! Now, to help all the other bad b*tches with bad anxiety, Megan launched a website filled with mental health resources.

The website, called Bad B*tches Have Bad Days Too, is a compendium of links to resources like free therapy, therapists that specialize in helping Black and LGBTQ people, crisis hotlines and more. 

According to People, a fan posted about the new site on Twitter on Sunday, saying Megan sent out the news to her fans, and sharing what appears to be a message from Megan herself: "Hotties! You know how much mental wellness means to me, so I created a hub with resources that can help when you might need a hand. Head to now and check it out. Love y'all so much "

Since the COVID-19 pandemic started in 2020, more people across the world have started experiencing anxiety and depression, according to the World Health Organization. In the U.S. young people and certain marginalized groups experienced increased levels of anxiety as related to the pandemic.

On her site, Megan provides resources for specific groups, like Black women, Black men, and LGBTQ people. In a 2018 article for Teen Vogue, Araya Baker,  a counselor, educator, suicidologist, and policy analyst research, wrote about the importance of marginalized people finding therapists who have similar backgrounds. “Research on race-matching in therapy suggests that for some clients, sharing a minoritized identity with a therapist may reduce guardedness, mistrust, and self-consciousness,” Baker wrote.  

And, in an essay for Teen Vogue in 2019, Gloria Oladipo wrote about the many reasons she needs a woman of color therapist, from having someone who she didn't feel the need explain certain microaggressions to, to issues like that of misdiagnosis. “As racial misdiagnosis continues to be an ongoing problem, the ability to have our needs accurately assessed and treated is critical for women of color’s mental health,” Oladipo wrote.

Megan Thee Stallion has been open about seeking therapy after her parents died, saying that “it’s OK to ask for help. And it’s OK to want to go get therapy.” And because we know that mental health treatment works, Megan sent an important reminder that it can help you “bounce back like bad b*tches always do.”
