She’s been open about her own mental health battles in the past, and now Sam Frost is using her own experience to help others.
The Home And Away star revealed she is launching a website called Believe by Sam Frost alongside her sister, Kristine Ross, which will act as a mental health platform to help struggling young women and girls.
Speaking to the Daily Telegraph, the actress explained: “It is basically a safe space where people can go to feel less alone.
“We are talking to mental health professionals opening up about navigating social media, which people can sometimes struggle with. We’ve got a long way to go but the website is almost launched so it is exciting.”
“There have been a lot of mental health issues within our family, stuff we have struggled with ourselves,” she continued.
“A lot of people have reached out to me because I have been publicly open about my struggles. I wanted to create a platform where people can share stories to feel like they are not alone, to have a sense of community.
“In mental health, there is a not a lot of things out there where people can feel safe and trusted.”
Sam, who is currently in a relationship with boyfriend Dave Bashford, previously admitted how she sought therapy following her appearances on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette and her failed radio career.
She has also spoken out about how she struggles with the pressures of social media.
“Social media can be a really lonely place,” she said.
“People are constantly comparing their lives to unrealistic realities. For young women growing up, I can’t even imagine what it would be like going through high school with Instagram. I am so glad I missed that.
“I cannot imagine the pressure that puts on kids in schoolyards so I think there really is an audience that can benefit from something like Believe.”
