Gomez’s Wondermind is an innovative mental fitness company that will be launching in 2022. The “Wizards of Waverly Place” actress has teamed up with her mom Mandy Teefey, and together they worked with Newsette founder Daniella Pierson to launch the platform. The team is trying to get rid of the stigma surrounding mental health and connect with users in an approachable way.
Last month, Gomez posted a photo of the December issue of Entrepreneur where she, her mother, and Pierson were featured on Instagram.
“Mental health is something that is very close to my heart. It is so important to have places where people can come together and understand that they’re not alone in their mental fitness journey,” she captioned the post. “That’s why I’ve joined forces with @mandyteefey and @daniella_pierson to bring you @officialwondermind – Launching in 2022.”
Always Been Candid About Her Journey
In January 2020, Gomez also opened up to WSJ. Magazine about her mental health journey.
“I had low self-esteem, and that’s something I work on continuously,” she admitted. “But I feel so empowered because I’ve gained so much knowledge about what was going on mentally.”
Gomez also said that her “highs were really high, and my lows would take me out for weeks at a time.”
