In partnership with Well Being Trust, Complex recently created a mini documentary on Banks’ journey towards recognition, redemption, and self-actualization in the face of mental health tribulations. Watch Azealia Banks above to get a deep look inside the life of one of pop music’s most controversial figures, one who is beautiful and flawed, just like the rest of us.
It takes a brave person to recognize that his or her own life has become too much to manage alone, and an even braver person to take the steps to reach out and talk about it. Share your realness by using #BeWell and #BeHeard when you’re ready.
