Presley Gerber speaks openly about mental health.
The model – who is the son of Cindy Crawford And Edge Gerber– recently shared his experiences with depression, as well as the mental health initiatives he hopes to create.
“So, for me, and having struggled with mental health, depression, and some other things that come with it, I’m thinking, whether I’m helping one person or a hundred people get out of this place that I’m in at any given point in my Life was like that’s all I have to do,” the 23-year-old said on the Studio 22 podcast on Feb. 28. “I’ve definitely had a lot of experiences. I’ve had a lot of deep dives, a lot of vacations, and a lot of time to look inside and learn about myself with therapists.”
Gerber recalled that he was 17 and recording music in a studio because he “wanted an outlet” to “share some of my experiences with some people.” He’s also “thought of literal clothing brands that revolve around mental health” to raise awareness.
“It’s such a big part of my life. It’s a 24/7 job and there’s so much behind it,” Gerber continued. “That’s really what I want to do – help people, whether they’re depressed or struggling with something that’s affecting their body negatively. I mean it could be anything and there is no judgment.”
