Hailey Bieber's social experiment is paying off.
On March 31, the model posted a video to YouTube in which she speaks to respected psychiatrist Jessica Clemons about mental health and how it can be affected by social media.
In recalling her own experiences with cyberbullies, Hailey said she struggled with being compared to other women, which only increased after she married Justin Bieber.
"I think when you're in a situation where you just have so many people hounding you with the same thing over and over and over again, it starts to mess with your mind," she said. "You start to question everything and you're like, 'Is there something that I'm not seeing that they see? Maybe they're right.'"
The 24-year-old started to wonder if she was "delusional" about aspects of her life based on the hateful comments she would receive.
Hailey began combatting her cyberbullies by simply silencing them, revealing that she now only looks at Instagram on weekends. She also filters out the negativity by turning off the comments, except for people she follows.
"Now when I put up a photo or a video or anything, I know it's only going to be people that… are going to be positive, and only going to encouraging and uplifting," she said.
As for Twitter, she doesn't even have an account anymore.
"There was never really a time when I would go on there where it didn't feel like a very toxic environment," she said. "The thought of even opening the app gives me such bad anxiety that I feel like I'm going to throw up… It just needs to not be a part of my life."
Hailey noted that Justin and therapy have also helped her maintain sanity in regard to social media.
"My husband has helped me so much," she said. "I really have to give him credit, because he's been doing this so much longer at this really massive level."
