Big Sean is commemorating Mental Health Awareness Month with a new web series dedicated to mental wellbeing.

Co-hosted by the Detroit rapper and his mother, Myra Anderson, new episodes will premiere each Saturday in May on the web site of their charitable Sean Anderson Foundation (seanandersonfoundation.org) and the IGTV app. The pair will discuss mental health issues and offer tips for maintaining well being, including meditation, diet and sleep patterns.

Announcing the series on Saturday, May 1, Big Sean -- who's been open about his own mental health struggles, wrote that, "My Mom had the idea of us introducing basic things that have tremendously helped us and people in our circle and your mind is where it all starts, a lot of y'all are probably hip already, but some aren't and for anyone who's anxiety runs high, feeling stuck, depressed you might just need to adjust your mindset to get properly started.

"May is Mental Health Awareness month and this topic is a pillar for Sean Anderson Foundation! All month long keep an eye on our page for tips to help you live a well balanced and healthy life!"

Myra Anderson added, "Sean and I wanted to share some of the no or low-cost techniques that we have used over the years to help us attain and maintain emotional balance. In the future, we may do a deeper dive into some of these techniques and other tools that we use."

Big Sean's latest album, "Detroit 2," was released last September. The set debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and on the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and was nominated for two Grammy Awards and two NAACP Image Awards. This year he's made guest appearances with Bryson Tiller ("Still Your") and on "Warrior" for the YSL Records compilation album "Slime Language 2."
