Big Sean and his mother are making mental health more accessible.
According to Page Six, the 33-year-old entertainer and his mother, Myra Anderson, are set to launch a weekly video series dedicated to wellness.
Episodes will span between 10 to 15 minutes and the mother-and-son duo will discuss free and low-cost techniques in an effort to help their audience “attain and maintain emotional balance.”
“I feel that Mental Health Awareness Month is the perfect time to talk with my mom about some of the things I have learned from her that have helped me along the way, and I hope will help others,” said Big Sean in a statement.
Throughout the duration of May, which is Mental Health Awareness Month, a video will be posted each and every Saturday. Each episode will be posted on the Sean Anderson Foundation website along with the organization’s Instagram and will cover everything from diet and exercise to sleep and meditation.
In the past, Big Sean has always been transparent about his struggles with mental health even revealing that it was partly his decision to cancel his 2018 tour with Playboi Carti.
He said the situation became so alarming that he eventually decided that he needed to dedicate more time to self-care and ultimately get help.
“I’m big on energy and I wasn’t feeling like myself and I couldn’t figure out why,” he previously told fans in a three-part video in 2019. “So what I did was I stepped back from everything I was doing, everything I had going on, because somewhere in the middle of it, dawg, I just felt lost and I didn’t know how I got there … So what I did was I started therapy. I got a good therapist. I was blessed enough to talk to some super-spiritual people, and they made me realize what I was missing in my life and one thing I was missing was clarity.”
The first episode kicks off Saturday, May 1.
