Camila Mendes has been very vocal on mental health and personal wellbeing, and now, she's making even more time to help others with their own struggles.
This time she's addressing eating disorders, something she too has dealt with in the past.
Taking to Instagram, Camila revealed that she and her sister had suffered from an eating disorder, and she is now joining project HEAL, a non-profit organisation that helps anybody deal with eating disorders.
“Could not be happier about my decision to get involved with Project HEAL,” she wrote. “I can say from experience that eating disorders are serious mental illnesses. Growing up, I watched my big sister suffer from one for many years, and I’ve experienced periods of my life when I’ve suffered symptoms as well.
“I’m joining Project HEAL to help break the stigma associated with eating disorders,” she added. “I’ll be attending their SF Gala at Levi Stadium on Saturday, and auctioning off a day on the Riverdale set. Please, please, please join me in supporting this incredible organisation.”
