Hailey Bieber might choose to keep certain aspects of her life personal, and rightfully so, but when it comes to her mental health, she’s a open book.

In a new video posted to her YouTube channel in honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, Hailey got candid about the “game-changer” that helps her maintain her emotional and mental well-being.

"There are several things I like to do to check in with myself… one of those things being talk to somebody you trust,” Bieber said, revealing to fans she’s been seeing a therapist for the past four years.

Sharing that while "it’s something that I felt not sure of in the beginning,” her outlook eventually changed. “The more I’ve grown, my relationship with my therapist, it has been such a game changer for me and it’s a space where I feel really safe to be able to talk about what’s going on in my mind, say things out loud and feel safe and not feel judged."

Another wellness practice Hailey spoke about during her sit-down was breathing exercises, which she credits to helping her "in times of just feeling a lot of anxiety." Along with taking baths and spending time in nature.

With 44.7 million Instagram followers, and the whole world having an opinion on every move she makes, Hailey admitted her relationship with social media has been "taxing" on her mental health.

"I’m somebody who struggles with people-pleasing and really wanting everybody to like me and caring a lot about what people have to say and what they think.”  But despite the "negativity" that  comes with having a presence on social media, Hailey also pointed out its positive aspects. "I think it’s a really wonderful and beautiful tool to be able to connect with people," she said. "There’s a lot about it that I also do love and I’m just in a space where I’m trying to have the healthiest relationship with social media that I possibly can."
