A persistent feeling of anxiety – and seeking respite in stress-baking – seems to be the glue that holds us together at the moment. Whether we’re worried about someone’s health, worried about being away from loved ones, worried about our job security, or worried about mounting bills, we all are, well, worried. And the impact of the pandemic on our mental health may just outlast the pandemic itself. But seeking help in today’s circumstances isn’t exactly easy.

With the aim of tackling that very problem, Demi Lavato took to Instagram to announce that she is helping launch The Mental Health Fund to support organizations that are meeting the increased demand for crisis counseling amidst the COVID-19 outbreak. “It’s so important that people have these lines because sometimes you feel really alone and you don’t know where to turn or who to talk to. You’re afraid that these thoughts you’re having are too dark, and you need guidance. That’s where this comes in. It can provide help to people who are struggling,” said the singer – who has been open about her own struggles – to People magazine. The fund, which has raised more than $2 million so far, will go towards Crisis Text Line, Kids Help Phone, Shout, and SpunOut.
