Alexa Ray Joel – the 24-year-old daughter of Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley – wants to help people deal with heartbreak-related depression.

Joel was hospitalized for a drug overdose last month, but now wants to turn her life around by helping young girls who are trying to deal with broken hearts.

“I have many exciting new developments for the New Year, and I hope all of you can be a part of it!!” wrote Joel on Facebook. "This includes new creative projects, and even more volunteer work in hopes to give back to the community and, most importantly, to help young girls with something I feel I know a GREAT deal about: Heartbreak-Related Depression. Although it does not get much attention in our society, it is a very serious and painful condition that often gets “swept under the carpet”. I hope to bring this topic more to light… I’m even going back to school for Psychology in hopes to learn more about this and many other afflictions that many of us have had to face… after all, there’s nothing more fascinating than the human mind and it’s respective conditions."
