Cole Sprouse Returns to Social Media After 'Much Needed Mental Health Break'

Cole Sprouse Returns to Social Media After 'Much Needed Mental Health Break'

Cole Sprouse is back from his time in Tulum, Mexico!

The 27-year-old Riverdale star took some time away to step back and focus on his mental health.

Cole shared his reflections in a new post on Instagram, his first in a month.

“Know I’ve been off of social media for a while. Decided to take a much needed mental health break,” Cole wrote. “I’ve never been the most active user of social media, but even the minor amount I had been engaging during quarantine had become a bit too taxing.”

“Work is slowly beginning to pick back up within a new normal. And as someone who has only ever really known work their entire life, I found that I’m best on a schedule,” he continued. “Knowing when to step away like I did in college, and when to re-engage is a fundamental skill for any young performer. Take your breaks. Mental and physical health always come first.”

“In time we’ll all be able to see more clearly what this pandemic actually is- a massive global trauma. The effects of which have, in no small way, been encouraged tremendously by the failings of the US,” Cole added. “We’re in the midst of a huge election, and I encourage everyone here in the United States to deeply consider our “modern” medical health care system. I’ll be more active soon my sweet little babies~”

Lili Reinhart Opens Up About the Pandemic Causing Her More Anxiety

Lili Reinhart Opens Up About the Pandemic Causing Her More Anxiety

Lili Reinhart is getting candid about struggling with anxiety during the pandemic.

In a recent Instagram live, the 23-year-old actress opened up about how the current health crisis has caused her anxiety to go up.

“I’ll have a very simple task…to do, but you know, I don’t want to do it,” Lili said. “Say, going to the post office. Like, I really don’t want to drive to the post office. It gives me anxiety because I don’t want to have to leave my dog; I don’t want to have to deal with going out in public; I don’t want to do the mask thing. I would, but like I don’t want to put myself in a stressful environment.”

“I get myself hyped up about very dumb things. And I do that all the time. I remind myself, ‘Why the hell are you stressing yourself out about going to the damn post office?’” she added.

Lili also opened up about finally having a chance to sit down and process all the fame and everything since starting Riverdale.

“Things took off in my career and in my life around four years ago, and I never really had a significant amount of time to just process everything, and process fame, and my kind of new world that I am living in,” Lili said. “It’s been a very important time for me—the past four months—to just process things.”

She added that she’s been filling up her days with books, therapy and other things.

“I’ve very much been…just trying to take full advantage of this very rare time, where I don’t have much to do and deal with my own little box of trauma in the back of my head that I wouldn’t normally ever want to sift through, you know?” she shared. “I’m fortunate enough that I can have therapy every week; and I can, you know, outsource for, you know, certain methods of healing, like Reiki or something like that, maybe a lot of people don’t have the opportunity to do.”

Selena Gomez Launches Rare Impact Fund For 28th Birthday

Selena Gomez Launches Rare Impact Fund For 28th Birthday

Selena Gomez is celebrating her birthday in a big way!

The actress, singer and producer turns 28 years old TODAY (July 22).

In honor of her big day, through her Rare Beauty company, Selena is launching the Rare Impact Fund to “help address the gaps in mental health services for underserved communities.”

The new fund is looking to raise $100 million over the next ten years to increase access to mental health resources by “cultivating partnerships with leading foundations, nonprofits organizations, and companies to make a measurable global impact.”

One percent of each Rare Beauty sale has been going into the fund since it’s launch, and will continue.

“The mere fact there are ‘underserved’ communities is a problem,” Selena told Forbes about the fund. “There are people that don’t have proper access to the internet to begin to find help, let alone being able to afford resources or the price of any medications that might be needed. Everyone should have access to proper mental health resources as well as medical care in general.”

Jaden Hossler Gets Candid About Depression & Suicide Attempts

Jaden Hossler Gets Candid About Depression & Suicide Attempts

Jaden Hossler is opening up about his battles with depression.

In a recent interview, the 19-year-old singer and TikTok star recently shared about his experiences.

“This is one thing I try to preach to other people because I’ve learned it myself. Pain is a very important thing for people,” he told Forbes. “A lot of people try to run from it. I did for most of my life, but you can’t escape pain. What you can do is choose how you let it affect you. You can either let it destroy you or you can let it change you and help you become a better person.”

“To my experience there was a lot of hate in my heart growing up. I went through a lot of things that drove me to hate myself and everyone around me,” Jaden continued. “I didn’t have appreciation for human life or anything like that. And then my senior year a situation happened with a very close person in my life that drove me to the darkest depression I’ve ever had in my life.”

“I was really involved in school and in sports and my senior year I just dropped it all. I didn’t go to school for like four months. I didn’t even really leave my room. I lost like 20, 25 pounds, tried to commit suicide like twice. I really just didn’t have any grasp at life,” Jaden said. “But after that last attempt and it just didn’t work it really brought me out of this selfishness that I really just kind of surrounded myself with. Everything I was doing at that point was for myself and after that, one, I vowed to myself I would never lie. Before I lived off of lies and manipulation. I stopped lying, which people are scared about not lying because it could hurt you in the moment.”

“But I promise it’s so much better in the end if you’ll just be honest to yourself and other people. Then two, I just started loving people.”

Camila Cabello Opens Up About Mental Health & OCD In New Essay

Camila Cabello Opens Up About Mental Health & OCD In New Essay

Camila Cabello is speaking out about her mental health for Mental Health Month.

The 23-year-old singer wrote an essay for WSJ Magazine where she details her struggles, and speaks about her battles with OCD and anxiety.

“If you look at the pictures I’ve posted on Instagram over the last year, you’ll find pictures of me writing in the studio, pictures in a hallway in a bomb-dot-com outfit before going onstage to perform, pictures of me cuddled up with my dog, Eugene, on a couch, and pictures of me bursting with excitement to play you my music,” Camila wrote. “But here’s what there aren’t pictures of from the last year: me crying in the car talking to my mom about how much anxiety and how many symptoms of OCD [obsessive-compulsive disorder] I was experiencing. My mom and me in a hotel room reading books about OCD because I was desperate for relief. Me experiencing what felt like constant, unwavering, relentless anxiety that made day-to-day life painfully hard.”

“I didn’t want to tell you what was going on for the same reason a lot of us don’t want to talk about what it feels like to be at war in our minds and in our bodies. I was embarrassed and ashamed,” she added.

“For a few months, I felt messed up, with a capital UP. My anxiety manifested in the form of obsessive compulsive disorder. OCD is not how it’s stereotyped, like, ‘She’s so OCD about her desk being organized, etc.’ OCD can take many different forms, and for me it was obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviors,” Camila continued.

“To put it simply, it made me feel like my mind was playing a cruel trick on me. It affected me physically, too. I couldn’t sleep for a long time, I had a constant knot in my throat, I had chronic headaches, and my body went through what felt like multiple roller-coaster rides every day,” she said. “I kept going and kept showing up, never letting people around me know how much I was really struggling. But you probably felt my distance on some level. All my loved ones did.”

“This last year has been incredibly overwhelming. I felt overworked, constantly stressed, depressed, etc etc,” Lili added. “This has been a very rare experience- to stay in one spot for an extended period of time.
