Ariana Grande has been through some tough times recently—a terrorist attack, the shocking death of her ex Mac Miller, and the very public engagement and break-up of her and SNL’s Pete Davidson. To get through it all, she’s turned to therapy, according to a recent tweet.
Earlier this week, the God Is a Woman Singer teased her new album and single titled Thank You, Next. After a fan joked about her latest breakup-themed hit, which highlights the lessons she learned from her past relationships, by writing on Twitter “who is ariana’s therapist and are they accepting new clients,” Grande took the opportunity to issue an important PSA about mental health.
“lmaoaoo this is funny as fuck but in all honesty therapy has saved my life so many times,” she wrote. “If you’re afraid to ask for help, don’t be. u don’t have to be in constant pain & u can process trauma. i’ve got a lot of work to do but it’s a start to even be aware that it’s possible.”
This isn’t the first time Grande has spoken up about mental health issues. Following the bombing after one of her concerts in Manchester, England in 2017, Grande has been open about her struggles with post-traumatic stress disorder and anxiety. “Sry i’m really really anxious and really exhausted and jus trying to get thru the trip,” she tweeted on her first trip back to England after the attack.
She even dedicated one of the tracks on Sweetener those affected by the bombing. “It’s just about just being there for each other and helping each other through scary times and anxiety,” she said of her song “get well soon” in an interview earlier this year.
Her fans loved her honesty about getting professional help. In the words of one fan: “This simple tweet is going to save a lot of people.”
