Rowan Blanchard Opens Up About Going To Therapy & Her Own Mental Health

Rowan Blanchard Opens Up About Going To Therapy & Her Own Mental Health

One of the best things about Rowan Blanchard is that she’s using her platform for amazing things – like polarizing terms, wage inequality, white feminism and much more.

This month, the 16-year-old actress and activist has opened up about mental health, and how she’s caring for her own mental health, too.

Speaking with Time, Rowan admits that she, like many others, goes to therapy to tackle her depression.

“I’m lucky to go to a therapist. I talk about it with my friends. It’s not this burden I carry. It’s not like a thing that’s my dirty little secret,” Rowan says. “I’m very frank and very open, and that has been aid to me, just letting my friends know I’m really depressed so I might cancel on you five minutes before I’m supposed to meet you.”

“I’ve had that relationship to a lot of my friends because we can talk about our mental health with each other, but we can’t rely on adults the same way to understand that when we tell each other we’re sad, we’re being serious,” she adds. “People who are close in age can understand that things are more surreal and devastating at this age because everything’s happening for the first time.”

Rowan also opened up about the whole term of “self-care” and what it really means to her.

“Part of my self-care was being like, not all of my life has to be public,” she shares. “I realized that I was sharing, sharing, sharing, because that was the culture I was used to, and once I started gaining a platform and writing things about my mental health I realized, oh, actually, it’s up to me what I want to say.”

Rowan continues, “That felt like a way of self-care — it’s up to me, it’s my voice, I can choose how I want to use it. I’m f***ing up every day in my regular life, I’m just not posting about it…I’m trying to figure out how to be a good person, a good daughter, a good sister, a good friend.”

Rowan Blanchard Calls For More Female Roles Like What Audrey Hepburn Had

Rowan Blanchard Calls For More Female Roles Like What Audrey Hepburn Had

Rowan Blanchard is celebrating Audrey Hepburn‘s birthday by sharing her thoughts on strong female characters in film and television.

The 16-year-old actress shared a photo of an autograph from the late actress and called for there to be more parts for strong women other than superheroes.

“The first thing I ever saved up for and bought for myself, Audrey’s autograph <3 Audrey’s presence on screen has always brought an emotional visceral-ness to me, to be able to witness these dimensional woman characters who weren’t superheroes or even necessarily empowered," she wrote.

"Lately, I get concerned that a sort of recent feminism dictates that what constitutes Strong Women or Strong Female Leads are women who are to a certain extent, are playing men: an empoweredness, a inability to be shaken, maybe even less sensitive and more forceful with their will- while it is cool to see that I guess, I wonder what movies and other types of strong women are being left behind or forgotten as they as they are masqueraded under some sort of non feminist relevance," Rowan added. "Audrey’s characters on screen never really had it figured out, sometimes they were selfish, insecure, silly helpless, or maybe even delicate. Her strong softness, (which was influenced by a especially strange and traumatic childhood, and dysphoric body illnesses all her life), reminded me that we do not need to position our softness, our sadness, or chaos or our voidness as in opposition to our feminism, or in what we classify as strong woman leads."

"Maybe we can work within it, think of it as being more radical to give nuance to and spotlight on the power of watching women think- the endless, fascinating world of our own psyches," she continued. "If we are to describe woman super heroes or assassins or action stars etc as being the only kind of empowered characters, what does it mean for characters like Audrey’s who were just as full if not more so, of the deservingness and nuance to be called strong. Something to ponder about 🎻<3 Happy birthday Audrey, I love you forever! 💌"
