“I am honored to join the board of the Child Mind Institute, where I hope to continue to share my personal lifelong experience with anxiety and be of service to children and teens across the nation with mental health or learning disorders,” Emma said in a statement shared with JustJared.com. “This is a stigma-shattering organization I am deeply passionate about, and I’m looking forward to helping the Child Mind Institute continue to advance its critically important work.”

Emma has been very open about her battles with anxiety in the past.

“I was a very, very, very anxious child and I had a lot of panic attacks,” Emma told Stephen Colbert back in 2017. “I benefitted in a big way from therapy. I started at 7.”
