Selena Gomez reportedly in mental health facility

Selena Gomez has reportedly re-entered a mental health facility after an emotional breakdown linked to her ongoing health issues.

After leaving a medical centre, she reportedly had an emotional meltdown and was readmitted to the mental health facility. She apparently wanted to leave but the doctors wouldn’t allow it.

This came after two previous hospitalisations as a result of her chronic Lupus, an incurable autoimmune disease. Gomez had also finished a two-week anxiety and depression program earlier in the year.

Gomez is reportedly set to be treated with dialectical behaviour therapy at the facility, which aims to reduce stress and help manage emotions.

The singer said in 2016 that the therapy was life-changing and was a keen advocate for it, especially for young women and girls.

Only several weeks ago, Gomez posted on her Instagram platform to let her followers know she would be taking a self-care break from social media after criticism given to her on the platform.

She said: “Just remember—negative comments can hurt anybody’s feelings.”

Some sources have suggested that Justin Bieber’s recent marriage to Hailey Baldwin may have triggered some of her anxiety and depression.

Following a kidney transplant in 2016 which almost killed her, Gomez dealt with depression during the recovery process. She had previously gone to a mental health facility for depression and anxiety as a side effect.

Gomez has been focused on creating music and managing her health. Apparently she is doing well and is receiving the treatment she needs.

However, she has said that she believes she will likely suffer from anxiety and depression for the rest of her life.

Gomez has been open about her mental and physical health and is an advocate for increasing awareness on mental health and wellbeing.
