Having struggled with her own mental health as a child and in her 20s, the award-winning actress made a promise to herself that she would help as many young children cope with their own mental health battles.
Hawn is an active advocate for mental health and has been vocal about her journey in navigating her way out of her dark adolescent times.
In May 2021, Hawn appeared on Good Morning Britain where she spoke to hosts Alastair Campbell and Susanna Reid about her personal experience with depression and talked about the devastating impact the recent global pandemic has had on children’s mental health for Mental Health Awareness Month.
After realising she was in the unique position to be able to help people, in 2003 the actress launched MindUP, a mindfulness-based social and emotional learning program for early learning services and schools.
“It is my mission to keep activating my dream for children to have a more manageable life and become the next generation helping to bring balance to our world, and yes, more happiness and peace in their hearts,” Hawn wrote in a social media post.
