Know What Zayn Malik Has To Say About Anxiety And Mental Health

Zayn Malik, the former One Direction boy band member, who left 1D to start his solo career in music, has finally spoken out about his anxiety and eating disorder in a candid insight into male mental health. He has already talked about his mental health challenges in his well documented self-titled autobiography.


Zayn Malik Has Opened Up About His Mental Health Struggles


The 24-year-old truly spoke about his struggles with The Sunday Times supplement, Style, explaining that he has overcome his demons. He told Style about his developmental anxiety and eating disorders. He said,

People saw strength in that, and they didn’t seem to expect it from a guy, but they expect it from a female – which to me is crazy. We’re all human. People are often afraid to admit difficulties, but I don’t believe that there should be a struggle with anything that’s the truth.


He further explained recalling about the time when it was seemed as taboo for a man to open about his mental health,

If you were a guy, you used to have to be really masculine, but now expressing emotion is accepted and respected.


Malik, who is currently on the peak of his solo career and is in a relationship with supermodel Gigi Hadid, suffered a series of anxiety attacks in 2016 that forced him to cancel many shows as he was not sufficiently confident.

In June 2016, the pop star pulled out of playing the Capital Summertime Ball in London 90 minutes before the show.

He explained his eating disorder saying that,

Every area of my life was so regimented and controlled. It was the one area where I could say, ‘No, I’m not eating that’.


Zayn, who has recovered a lot now, recently starred in the new Versace campaign shot by Gigi herself. After succeeding with his first, his second album is set to be released later this year.

All of you out there suffering from anxiety or depression, speak it out. Talk to someone closer, or visit a psychologist for a healthy talk therapy (psychotherapy). Just do not let it build inside you.

Stay healthy, stay strong!
