Pia Wurtzbach celebrates 1.1 million views for Ted Talk on mental health


Pia Wurtzbach is nothing but thankful for her fans for supporting her first-ever Ted Talk where she got real about her mental health struggles.  

The Miss Universe 2015 shared how her story was for everyone who struggled with the same challenges to support each other.  

“Thinking about how 1.1M views could means that we are making each other feel we’re not alone, and that we are here to support each other’s mental health… Para sa ating lahat yung recent post ko on Youtube about mental health,” she wrote.  

Pia’s 16-minute video uploaded in early December featured her story from trying her luck three times at Binibining Pilipinas to winning Miss Universe and struggling with her mental health. 

“Today is the first time I’m opening about my mental health struggles in public because I want to paint a picture not of a perfect beauty queen but of a real person, with real life experiences. There’s no shame in admitting that you aren’t perfect and there’s no shame in admitting that you need help,” she said opn TEDxSingapore.
