Shawn Mendes’ popularity has only skyrocketed in the past few years. All that touring and performing at several shows simultaneously has taken a massive toll on the singer. He recently took a break from his ongoing tour to prioritize his mental health. The 23-year-old is already progressing in that direction.

According to People, Mendes is “getting help,” with his mental health issues. As per a source close to the artist, he is particularly concerned about his overall health. Explaining that when he is troubled, he always seeks counseling.

When he gets frustrated with things around him, he turns inward and suffers. He said he is getting help so that is admirable. Shawn is a very sensitive and caring guy.

Shawn Mendes announced his hiatus while in the midst of a massive international tour. Last week, the singer-songwriter revealed on Instagram that he has been touring since the age of 15. Although Mendes was heartbroken to discuss the break, fans were relieved to learn that the singer is putting his health first.

The pop sensation began his Wonder World tour with a performance in Portland, Oregon, on June 27th. The star has gigs scheduled all the way through October in the United States and Canada. Mendes will take over the European leg of the tour in May 2023.
