“There is nothing more important to me than getting young people access to the resources that they need to support their mental health. This is a personal mission and the reason that I created the Rare Impact Fund,” said the 31-year-old. The event is titled A Night of Radiance & Reflection and will be held at Nya Studios in Hollywood. Gomez is expected to host 350 guests, and her Hulu series costar, Martin Short will also be making an appearance.
Music producer and DJ Marshmello will also be attending the event being held on October 4, 2023. The official website describes it as “an inspiring night of food, drinks, entertainment, and a live auction” hoping to reduce the stigma around mental health and educate people about the available services. Gomez donates 1% of all Rare Beauty sales to the Rare Impact Fund. The nonprofit’s aim is to expand access to mental health services for people.

Selena Gomez and her struggle with mental health
Back in 2014, the Come and Get It hitmaker divulged, “I lost sight of who I was. I listened to the opinions of people, and I tried to change who I am because I thought that others would accept me for it.” The next year she explained how despite feeling so many emotions we don’t want to, our purpose as human beings is to share, help, and encourage others. Being diagnosed with Lupus also caused anxiety, panic attacks, and depression, for Gomez.
