Big Sean’s Personal Mental Health Struggles
Big Sean has always been open about the highs and lows he has faced in his struggle with mental health. In 2021, the Grammy-winning rapper courageously shared the harsh reality of his mental health journey. He honestly acknowledged that he had experienced thoughts of suicide on multiple occasions, even holding a firearm in his hand at times.
“I for sure contemplated suicide a lot of times, having guns in my hand, feeling it for real,” Big Sean said. “Because I was just stressed out and not happy. I realized that OK, I need to stop everything I’m doing and figure this out or I’m going to self-destruct.” The rapper went on to say that, in the end, things got better for him. However, he first had to learn to prioritize his own mental well-being. “I took the time off, canceled everything I was doing, sought therapy, connected with God more, spiritually grounded myself,” he shared, “and put myself first as a priority for the first time ever.” What do you think of Big Sean’s message of support?
