The Canadian singer Shawn Mendes has, in his own words, recently dealt extensively with his inner life. "I think the past year and a half have been for me the most enlightening and developmental and beautiful and simply healing process of my life," the 24-year-old pop star told the Wall Street Journal.

Working on himself was very difficult, explained the "Señorita" singer. "There were many hours of therapy, many attempts to understand how I feel and what these feelings trigger in me."

According to the American "People" magazine, Mendes had canceled a tour last summer to focus on his mental health. The Canadian praised the fact that society is moving to a point "where mental health is really becoming a priority".
