Billie Eilish Opened Up About How Hitting Puberty Early Impacted Her Mental Health In her first cover interview with
Vogue, Billie Eilish opened up
about depression and how hitting
puberty early played a part. The singer said that while
several factors contributed to her
depression, her body changing
at a young age was the main cause. "I just hated my body...
I developed really early...
So my body was going
faster than my brain." Research suggests a link
between hitting puberty early
and mental health issues. Eilish said her body dysmorphia
"peaked" at age 12, when she was
part of a competitive dance company. Depression took hold after
a hip injury halted her budding
dance career, Eilish told Rolling Stone. Eilish said she cares for her
mental health with therapy,
prioritizing time with friends,
and horseback riding. She shares her own mental
health struggles to help others
feel less alone and remind people
that it's always okay to ask for help.
