On GMA this week she said of her bipolar diagnosis: "It was really freeing to have the information. It made me really happy because I started to have a relationship with myself and I'm the happiest I've ever been."

Selena has recently launched a free digital mental health platform to help others, named Wondermind, designed to remove the stigma from conversations about mental health.

Selena Gomez said she is happier than ever following bipolar diagnosis

This isn't the first time the star has used her platform to raise awareness of health issues. In 2016, Selena opened up about using her platform to educate others about lupus. "I waited for the right time to talk about it because I am in a great place, and I’m very healthy,” she told Billboard in 2016. “I’m not trying to be loud about it: It was time to use my platform to help."
