Happiness in the Snow: Selena Gomez Spotted with Friends after Mental Health Treatment

After being admitted to a mental health facility due to an emotional breakdown in September, Selena Gomez has been out of the spotlight. However, now two months later, she has been released from the hospital and appears happy and healthy. On Tuesday, her good friends Connor Franklin and Bailee Madison shared several pictures of their ski-tubing trip to Big Bear, California, which is approximately 95 miles from Los Angeles.

According to sources, the Disney alum is feeling much better and looking forward to returning to normalcy.

The pop sensation Selena Gomez has made her comeback after a short hiatus. She was spotted enjoying a snowy date with her friends Connor Franklin and Baillee Madison, marking the first photos of the star since her hospitalization in October. Selena wore black while sledding down the hill with her friends sandwiched between them. The 26-year-old superstar looked relaxed and fresh dressed in a long black jacket, black knit beanie, black sweatshirt, and furry black boots while soaking in the sun and snow. Her big beaming smile in one snap showed off her enthusiasm, standing to the right of her three friends at the bottom of a ski-tube run.

Selena is radiating happiness and health in a photo where she is seen joyfully yelling out, standing beside three of her friends. Another sweet snap shows Selena and Connar playfully egging each other on. The group shot captures almost everyone with their hands in the air, while others cling to a tube. Selena has been open about her struggles with depression and checked herself into a mental health facility in October after two health scares. According to sources, she is feeling much better and looking forward to getting back to normal life. In early October, Selena was admitted to the hospital twice for a low white blood cell count, which can be a side effect for kidney transplant recipients like herself.

In this snap, the group showed their excitement while saying cheese at the bottom of a tube run. Selena underwent a kidney transplant in 2017, which was a side effect from her battle with Lupus. During an interview, Selena Gomez opened up about her struggles with depression and getting over someone. Making matters worse, she was also battling anxiety and depression during her second visit to the hospital. Not long after her second health scare, she flew back east and checked into a treatment center. Selena underwent a kidney transplant due to her ongoing battle with Lupus. She first revealed that she underwent chemotherapy to treat the disease back in 2015. Lupus is a collection of autoimmune diseases in which the human immune system becomes hyperactive and attacks healthy tissues. Symptoms can affect joints, blood cells, heart, lungs and, in Selena’s case, kidneys.
