Selena Gomez reveals past year had 'scary moments' with her mental health

Selena Gomez has revealed that the past 12 months have been so testing on her emotional and mental wellbeing, that she was unable to even smile.

The 27-year-old singer has tackled her mental health problems full on and has been open about her battle with depression and anxiety.

Earlier this month, Selena was given the McLean Hospital’s 2019 McLean Award for her openness and how it has helped countless others.

During her acceptance speech, she gave an intimate account of how she has coped in the past year and how it has been 'one of the scariest of her life'.

A video of what Selena said has appeared on social media and is now being widely shared.

She told the audience: "I think that we are better when we tell the truth and so this is my truth.

"Last year, I was suffering mentally and emotionally and I wasn’t able to stay all kept up and together.”
