Selena Gomez is so many things. She's an actress, a singer, a fashion icon, a businesswoman, and the most-liked person on Instagram. Most importantly, she's an inspiration, not only because of her trajectory but also for opening up about her mental health.

In August 2016, the 25-year-old artist canceled the remaining 34 dates of her Revival Tour, stopped working on music, and went M.I.A from social media altogether. Fans were confused, but it was later revealed that she checked into rehab to care for her mental health.

She was disconnected from social media and her fans for 90 days, recovering at a treatment facility in Tennessee to control her “anxiety, panic attacks and depression” as a result of her lupus disease.

She made her comeback at the 2016 American Music Awards, where she won Best Pop/Rock Female and delivered a very empowering speech.

Now, almost a year later, the Mexican-American star opened up to InStyle magazine about her time in therapy. Here are some things we learned.

1. Rehab was the best thing she could've done.

2. She had no phone accessibility.
