Chance, who recently pledged $1 million to mental health resources in his hometown of Chicago, wrote on Twitter that friends and family members need to realize that their expectations are unlikely to match the progress of their loved ones that are dealing with mental illness. He urged those close to people with mental illness to remain patient and supportive.

Chance’s tweet drew praise from others on Twitter, with many expressing thanks for his empathy.

“I think anxiety is also something that I’m just now being exposed to,” he said in an interview with Complex Magazine.

“For a long time that wasn’t a thing that [the black community] talked about,” he said. “I don’t remember people talking about anxiety; I don’t remember, when I was growing up, that really being a thing. Now I’m starting to get a better understanding of that part of my life.”
