both the tabloid press and so­cial me­dia trolls. By the time Frost landed the role of Jas­mine on Home And Away, the knives were well sharp­ened, with crit­ics call­ing her cast­ing a “stunt”.

Frost has been vo­cal about suf­fer­ing from de­pres­sion and anx­i­ety since be­com­ing a pub­lic fig­ure. “When you’re go­ing through a re­ally chal­leng­ing time – and I’ve been there a mil­lion and one times – it is so dark. You feel so alone and you think you are never go­ing to get out of it – ever,” she says. “You can’t re­mem­ber what it feels like to be happy.”

Her open­ness about men­tal health has in­spired oth­ers to reach out with their own sto­ries. From that, Be­lieve was born.

“[My sis­ter and I] wanted to cre­ate a plat­form where we could put ev­ery­one in touch with the right peo­ple – psy­chol­o­gists and trained peo­ple. And to hear sto­ries from oth­ers who have achieved in­cred­i­ble things af­ter they have gone through dark times,” she tells Stel­lar. “Be­cause it doesn’t mat­ter how many times peo­ple go ‘ You’re go­ing to get through it.’ Some­times you just need to hear a fa­mil­iar story and speak to some­one who un­der­stands.”
