Celebrities are just like us, after all. During the song “Anxiety” from her latest album, Megan Thee Stallion describes herself as “a bad bitch with bad anxiety.”
For all those with terrible anxiety, the 2021 Glamour Woman of the Year launched a website filled with mental health resources.
There are links to resources like free therapy, therapists helping Black and LGBTQ people, crisis hotlines, and more on Bad Bitches Have Bad Days Too.
People reported that a fan posted about the new site on Twitter on Sunday, claiming Megan told her fans about it: “Hotties!”. Mental wellness means a lot to me, so I created a hub with resources you might find helpful. Make sure to check out http://badbitcheshavebaddaystoo.com now. I love you guys so much.”
Globally, more people are experiencing anxiety and depression since the COVID-19 pandemic began in 2020. There were increased stress levels related to the pandemic among young people and certain marginalized groups in the U.S.
Megan provides resources for specific groups: Black women, men, and LGBTQ people. Counselor and educator Araya Baker wrote about how marginalized people should find therapists with similar backgrounds in a 2018 Teen Vogue article.
Baker wrote, “Research on race-matching in therapy suggests that for some clients, sharing a minoritized identity with a therapist may reduce guardedness, mistrust, and self-consciousness.”
Gloria Oladipo wrote for Teen Vogue in 2019 about the many reasons she needs a woman-of-color therapist, from not feeling the need to explain microaggressions to fears of misdiagnosis. “As racial misdiagnosis continues to be an ongoing problem, the ability to have our needs accurately assessed and treated is critical for women of color’s mental health,” Oladipo wrote.
Megan Thee Stallion admitted seeking therapy after her parents died, saying, “it’s okay to ask for help.” Megan expressed the importance of mental health treatment in helping you “bounce back like bad bitches always do.”
