Taraji P. Henson found her “life’s purpose” in talking about her “mental health”. The 49-year-old actress has been honest about her own battle with depression and anxiety for several years, and in 2018 she set up the Boris Lawrence Henson Foundation – which aims to provide resources to those struggling with mental health – in honour of her father, who had suffered with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) prior to his 2006 passing.
And now, the ‘Empire’ star has said she believes helping other people tackle their issues head-on is her purpose in life.
She explained to the March/April 2020 issue of ESSENCE magazine: “I feel like I found my life’s purpose, talking about mental health. I was trying to find it through acting, but then people get caught up in the celebrity. This is real, this is straight to the chase. This is me.
Taraji also wants to help women, especially black women, come to terms with the ageing process, because she knows it can take a toll on their mental health.
