Despite making her start on children’s and teens’ television shows (like Barney—a classic!), Selena Gomez has always been open and honest about dealing with real-life issues—proving she’s far more mature than, say, her Disney past would lead you to believe.

I mean, the actress-singer has already been an influential voice in the conversations surrounding mental health and autoimmune disease (Gomez openly spoke about the kidney transplant she received for her lupus condition). Now, after being treated for depression and anxiety, the star is opening up again about her struggles with the two.

“I’ve had a lot of issues with depression and anxiety, and I’ve been very vocal about it, but it’s not something I feel I’ll ever overcome,” Gomez reveals in a recent interview with Harper’s Bazaar. “There won’t be a day when I’m like, ‘Here I am in a pretty dress—I won!'”

“I’ve had a lot of issues with depression and anxiety, and I’ve been very vocal about it, but it’s not something I feel I’ll ever overcome.”

She goes on to admit that it’s a lifelong battle, just as so many other mental health struggles can turn out to be. “I’m okay with that because I know that I’m choosing myself over anything else.” 

In true wise-beyond-her-years fashion, Gomez is handling it the healthy way. “Anyone who knows me knows I will always start with my health and my well-being,” she says. “I want to make sure I’m healthy. If that’s good, everything else will fall into place.” Preach.

Thanks to Gomez and others, here’s why we’re in a new era of mental health authenticity. And, regardless of who you are, these are 5 mental health-boosting supplements that everyone should be taking
