“I’m a bad bitch, and I got bad anxiety,” Megan Thee Stallion sings on her most recent album, Traumazine. Now she’s here to help fans who can relate with the launch of a new mental health resource website called Bad B*tches Have Bad Days Too.
The “Savage” artist has been open about her own mental health journey for quite some time now, after reflecting on turning to therapy in the wake of her parents’ death.
“I’ve lost both of my parents,” Megan Thee Stallion said at the time, according to People. “Now I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh, who do I talk to? What do I do?’ I just started learning that it’s OK to ask for help. It’s OK to want to go get therapy.”
“As a Black person, and when you think of therapy you think of ‘Oh my gosh, I’m weak,’ you think of medication and you just think the worst,” she added. “That’s kind of what you see on TV too; like, therapy wasn’t even presented in the media as something that was good. Now it’s becoming safe to say, ‘Alright now, there’s a little too much going on. Somebody help me.”
Now, the rapper is taking what she’s learned and using it to help by sharing a hub of resources made up of links to free therapy, crisis hotlines, substance abuse resources, Black mental wellness resources and therapists that specifically aim to help Black and LGBTQ2S+ people.

“Hotties! You know how much mental wellness means to me, so I created a hub with resources that can help when you might need a hand,” Megan Thee Stallion wrote on Twitter, according to Teen Vogue. “Head to http://badbitcheshavebaddaystoo.com now and check it out. Love y’all so much.”
In the words of Megan herself, that’s real hot girl shit.
