Mental health awareness is something we should all be talking about more. Having suffered myself I decided I want to do something about it. So I’m pleased to announce I’m making a film with the BBC, telling my own personal story and exploring how social media, body shaming and trolling is effecting the mental health of young people. More details coming soon. @bbcone @bbcthree
In the video, she said: “It is a subject really really close to my heart, it’s about mental health awareness.”
“One in four men and women suffer from mental health and it is a subject I personally think we don’t speak about enough.”
The 27-year-old has been in the spotlight since she rose to fame on The X Factor eight years ago and will give viewers an insight into the online trolling she received in the documentary, which is titled Jesy Nelson: My Story.
