Shawn Mendes is getting candid about a recent chapter in his life. The Stitches singer recently reflected on cancelling the remainder of his Wonder World Tour in order to prioritise his mental health. Looking back on the months that followed after making that decision, Shawn shared it wasn't an easy journey. "The process was very difficult," he told The Wall Street Journal. "A lot of doing therapy, a lot of trying to understand how I was feeling and what was making me feel that way. And then doing the work to help myself and heal. And also leaning on people in my life to help a little bit." Reflecting on his personal mental-health experience, Shawn noted that while it was "a lot of work," the last year and a half provided "the most eye-opening and growing and beautiful and just healing process of my life." "I'm also really grateful for all the people that were so accepting and loving and kind and understanding," he noted. Shawn's reflection comes after he officially cancelled the rest of his Wonder World Tour in July.
