The following statement has been released by ManyVids:
Many of us struggle with mental health, and sex workers and MV stars are no exception. The stigma from society can compound and worsen the health struggles and challenges that sex workers may face. Recently, MV star and adult entertainer Honey Gold endured a mental health crisis and is reaching out for help and support.
It takes remarkable courage to both admit one needs help and to actively seek it. On behalf of the entire MV community, ManyVids has made a donation and we want to let Honey know that the MV community is here for her.
You’re not alone, Honey Gold, the MV community stands with you, supports you, and loves you. It’s an act of bravery to ask for help when you need it, and we admire your courage in coming forward.
Because of the stigma about our industry, many adult performers don’t have a lot of places they can turn to for help. The MV Hotline is there for just that reason. It’s a place that any MV star can turn to when they’re dealing with issues and need someone to talk to. If you need support or want to talk, please call the MV Hotline at 1-888-350-3051.
The MV Hotline is open Monday through Friday, 8 AM to 4 PM Eastern time. If the hotline isn’t open when you need it, you can email them at [email protected]. If it’s a major emergency, please call 911 or head to your nearest hospital’s emergency room.
