Hailey Baldwin: Mental Health Should Be A Top Priority

Hailey Baldwin: Mental Health Should Be A Top Priority

“There’s a lot of different levels of self-care, like eating right, drinking water and working out. It’s really good for your mentality,” Baldwin said.

Many are concerned about Justin Bieber after he spoke out earlier this month on social media about struggling with depression and asking fans for their prayers.

Now his wife Hailey Baldwin has told People that mental health “should be number one, and it falls to the side a lot.”

As Baldwin explained, “I think there’s more attention on mental health these days, and I see why and get why. I think you have to know what works for you.”

Baldwin also spoke of the benefits of the beach, and she and Bieber spent some time by the ocean while speculation swirled about Bieber’s mental state. Baldwin felt that spending time at the beach can be “grounding. The sound of the ocean, being in the sun – there are so many things that are healthy about the beach to me.”

Baldwin added, “There’s a lot of different levels of self-care, like eating right, drinking water and working out. It’s really good for your mentality.”

While Baldwin wasn’t speaking directly about Bieber’s mental health, a source close to the couple said, “Justin is still receiving treatment, but is doing okay. He is very, very focused on getting better. He wants to be in a great place for his own and Hailey’s sake. He is still confident that he will get there.”

The source added that Baldwin is putting no pressure on Bieber to get better. “She only wants him to focus on his mental health.”

In addition to admitting he was “struggling a lot,” Bieber also wrote on his Instagram post that he’s “just feeling super disconnected and weird.”

But he also showed his determination to get better when he added, “I always bounce back so I’m not worried, just want to reach out and ask for you guys to pray for me. God is faithful and ur prayers really work, thanks…the most human season I’ve ever been in facing my stuff head on.”

Baldwin and Bieber have postponed their plans to have a more formal at the altar wedding while the singer gets help and heals. The source close to the couple concludes that “there are so many people who love and care for him and are helping him deal with what he needs to deal with. Hailey is definitely one of those people.”
