Emma Stone is joining the board of the Child Mind Institute. She shared a statement to People Magazine :
I’m honored to join the board of the Child Mind Institute,” Stone said in a statement to PEOPLE. “This is a stigma-shattering organization I am deeply passionate about, and I’m looking forward to helping the Child Mind Institute continue to advance its critically important work.
Acting, along with therapy, became the primary way that Stone was able to cope and conquer her anxiety. And since garnering fame for her roles in Easy A, La La Land and now The Favourite, Stone has used her own experience to raise awareness for mental health disorders. Now, the Academy Award-winning actress, 30, plans to continue helping other kids struggling with mental health and learning disorders by joining the Board of Directors at the Child Mind Institute — a nonprofit organization dedicated to doing just that.
