Happy May! The key buzzword for this month is “Self-Care”. May is Mental Health Awareness month and many celebrities are publicly sharing their personal stories of mental health struggles to raise awareness and de-stigmatize the conversation around mental health. Check out this issue’s Culture section to read about women such as Sophie Turner, Bebe Rexha, Ariana Grande, Lady Gaga, Selena Gomez, Kristen Bell, P!nk and many more who are determined to generate honest dialogue around mental health and let people know they are not alone with their struggles.
