Selena Gomez launches mental health platform ‘Wondermind’


Selena Gomez is using her years of mental health advocacy to launch Wondermind, a mental health company she’s heading up with her mom, Mandy Teefey, and media entrepreneur, Daniella Pierson. Wondermind was described in a press release as a platform that “destigmatizes and democratizes mental health.” Teefey said, “We hope to be the one stop shop for all mental fitness and conversation.”

The Wondermind website will serve as the main hub with daily content, interviews with experts, and other tools and resources — free of charge. There will also be a weekly podcast featuring a variety of guests, including therapists and celebrities who are known for their mental health advocacy. Gomez said, “We want to be that place where people feel comfortable to talk about the things under the hood. I really want people to be understood and seen and heard. It’s OK to not be OK.”  When Gomez revealed she had bipolar disorder in 2020, she said, “it was really freeing to know that information. It made me really happy because I started to have a relationship with myself, and that’s the best part.”

The eventual goal is to expand Wondermind into a production company that also releases books, exercise journals, and streaming content. Said Gomez in a press release: “Every person has their own mental health journey. If we ignore them, pretty them up or hide them from the world, it doesn’t change that they are very, very real.”
