“Bad b*tches have bad days too.”

Just when I thought I couldn’t love Megan Thee Stallion enough, she goes and uses her platform for the ultimate good — mental health. She just launched a website, Bad Bitches Have Bad Days Too, the name being in reference to her current single called “Anxiety,” from her second album, Traumazine. The website offers mental health resources to her fans, with the rapper urging visitors to seek help amid a mental health crisis among U.S. youth, brought to surface by the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

The site offerings range from free therapy organizations, crisis hotlines for suicide and substance abuse, and so much more. She’s even included a special section specifically for the Black community and LGBTQ+ community — with resources such as therapy for Black men and women, Black mental wellness projects, and a list of LGBTQ+ psychotherapists of color. Megan has been very open about how she prioritizes her mental health and traces it back to having lost so many family members, including both of her parents.

 

 

 

“I’ve lost both of my parents. Now I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh, who do I talk to? What do I do?’ I just started learning that it’s OK to ask for help. It’s OK to want to go get therapy. As a Black person, and when you think of therapy you think of ‘ Oh my gosh, I’m weak,’ you think of medication, and you just think the worst.”

 

She’s also admitted that while mental health is important to her, she still finds herself immersing herself in work, intentionally packing her schedule, to keep her from ruminating on her troubles for too long.

 

This isn’t the first time that she’s publicly made it a point to advocate for mental health awareness. In February, she launched the Pete & Thomas Foundation in honor of her late parents, Joseph Pete and Holly Thomas. The foundation aims to “catalyze resources to effect meaningful and positive change in the lives of women and children, senior citizens, and underserved communities in Houston, TX, and across the globe.”

 

Traumazine explores all the levels of the rapper’s mental health, and what she does to cope. Learn more about it now.
