A source told People that Mendes is “getting help” for his mental health and stated, “Shawn is a very sensitive and caring guy”. The source also revealed that, “When he gets frustrated with things around him, he turns inwards and suffers. He said he is getting help so that is admirable.”
Shawn Mendes uploaded on Instagram on July 27, 2020, the reason for the postponement of the shows saying, “We were hopeful that I might be able to pick up with the rest of the dates after some much-needed time off, but at this time I have to put my health as my first priority. This doesn’t mean I won’t be making new music, and I can’t wait to see you on tour in the future.”
In 2018, TIME named Mendes as one of the 100 most influential people in the world.
