Big Sean has been an outspoken advocate for mental health awareness for years and has now launched a wellness video series with his mother Myra Anderson to tackle the issue even further. The series is presented by The Sean Anderson Foundation (Big Sean’s real name) which will release a new episode every Saturday in May for Mental Health Awareness Month.  Topics will include sleep, meditation, diet, exercise, and a specialty strategy called “the emotional freedom technique.”
