Bieber, whose name has been in the headlines of late thanks to his Vogue cover alongside his new bride, model Hailey Baldwin, as well as his upcoming religious wedding ceremony, is seeking professional help for his mental well-being.

"He has been struggling a bit", a source told People.

The source noted that this is something Justin "has to deal with", and is in fact seeking therapy to help him work through it.

While Justin hasn't publicly commented on the treatment he's sought for depression, it's a struggle that can be particularly burdensome, even on the strongest individuals. "It's just something else that he struggles with mentally", the source adds.

"It's very hard for Hailey to watch him suffer with the depression", the source continues. "He seems confident he will feel better soon".

Broncos Agree To Acquire Joe Flacco From Ravens
The Jacksonville Jaguars , Washington Redskins and Miami Dolphins are among the teams expected to add new quarterbacks. The Broncos began to study him during Super Bowl week, sources told ESPN, and agreed to a deal before the combine.

Justin Bieber has a great support system in his wife, Hailey.

According to People, the 24-year-old is receiving counselling and is "very focused on his mental health".

"He started off as a typical sweet, Canadian teen".

Bieber also made mention of a week-long therapy retreat he descended upon to take part in a type of therapy known as the Hoffman Process, which involved him beating up a pillow. Having this huge amount of fame completely changed him. The source adds that he "struggles a lot with the idea of fame - being followed, having his every move stalked by fans, cameras in his face. She just wants him to be at his healthiest so she pushed him to get steady help and he hasn't resisted". The singer was candid about his issues in a recent joint Vogue interview with his wife. Hailey's very logical and structured, which I need. I found myself doing things that I was so ashamed of, being super-promiscuous and stuff, and I think I used Xanax because I was so ashamed.

"I got really depressed on tour. I just needed some time to evaluate myself: who I am, what I want out of my life, my relationships, who I want to be - stuff that when you're so immersed in the music business you kind of lose sight of".
