Emma Stone Teams Up With Mental Health Awareness Campaign

Emma Stone

Emma Stone was 14 years old when she convinced her parents to let her conquer Hollywood, but there was once a time she didn’t think she would be able to leave her native Arizona to pursue her dreams.

The 28-year-old actress opened up about her struggles with anxiety in a new video for the Child Mind Institute, a nonprofit for children with mental health disorders, and recounted how she once thought the condition would affect her forever.

‘I truly, as a kid, did not think I would be able to ever move away from home or to be away from people that I had separation anxiety with,’ she said in the candid clip. ‘I’ve been able to manage that with great therapists and great cognitive behavioral tools – meditation and lots of things.’
