Selena Gomez has been pretty under-the-radar for the past few months, and there's a solid reason why: the star is reportedly in rehab focusing on her mental health.

Selena canceled her Revival world tour to deal with "anxiety, panic attacks, and depression" (all side effects of Lupus, which she suffers from), and is currently at a "super intense" treatment center in Tennessee. "Selena is dealing with lupus, but this break is to focus on her mental health," a source tells Us Weekly. "She can go to a very dark place."

"I want to be proactive and focus on maintaining my health and happiness, and have decided that the best way forward is to take some time off," Selena said in August. "Thank you to all my fans for your support. You know how special you are to me, but I need to face this head on to ensure I am doing everything possible to be my best. I know I am not alone and by sharing this, I hope others will be encouraged to address their own issues."

Selena has stopped working on new music while in recovery, and "hasn't told anyone when she'll be back in studio." Instead, she's been seen spending time with her mother, stepfather, and grandparents around Tennessee, where locals say she seems "happy and relaxed."

While Selena hasn't directly commented on her reported rehab visit, there's a huge stigma around mental health in this country, and her proactive attitude will doubtless have a big influence on fans who also struggle with depression and anxiety.
