Megan Thee Stallion Shares Mental Health Resource Site
“Bad bitches have bad days too,” Megan Thee Stallion memorably rapped on “Anxiety.” A revealingly honest song about her personal struggles with mental health, the track fits right in with Megan’s recent release traumazinea raw album where the rapper boldly embraces the, well, trauma the last years of her life. (It was one of NYLON‘s favorite tracks from the record.) In the song, the idea that “bad bitches have bad days, too” becomes a kind of mantra, letting her fans and herself know that sometimes it’s okay not to treat yourself well feel – as long as you do as she says, and “bounce back like a bad bitch always does.” With its soothing message, the song has resonated with fans around the world, and now its central mantra becomes the name for Megans latest company used: a website for mental health resources.
The fully functional Bad Bitches Have Bad Days Too website is an easy-to-use hub for all things mental wellbeing. The site provides links to free therapy organizations such as the Center for Interactive Mental Health Solutions and iPrevail, and mental health hotlines such as the National Crisis Text Line and the Suicide & Crisis Lifeline. Megan even went a step further for her hotties, including a section reserved for links to specialized services like the Dear Black Women Project, Therapy for Black Men, and the LGBTQ Psychotherapist of Color Directory.
The hub was first announced by a tweet from Shea Jordan Smith, a Houston-based senior digital political strategist. “Megan [Thee Stallion] has created a website that compiles a list of various mental health resources and sends them out to her fans and followers. Really hot girl shit,” he tweeted over the weekend. Megan retweeted the tweet from her Twitter account.
Though Megan is yet to say more about the project, the rapper shared a few words via the website through Smith, who shared a quote from her. “Hotties! You know how much mental wellbeing means to me, so I created a hub of resources that can help if you need help,” Megan reportedly said, according to a follow-up tweet from Smith. “Now go to badbitcheshavebaddaystoo.com and check it out. I love you all so much.”
It’s a particularly busy time for Megan. In addition to the release traumazinethe rapper spent the summer showing off her acting skills by appearing in STARZ P Valley and made her Marvel debut in She-Hulk: Lawyer. Next, she will act as a host and musical guest on the October 15 episode Saturday night live. And that’s not even including her upcoming film roles, including A24’s debut musical Damn identical twins and the coming The Best Man Wedding.
With so much work to do, I’m glad Megan has these mental health resources ready!
