Colton Haynes opens up about depression struggle: “I can’t stress enough how important it is to seek help”

As if I didn’t already adore Colton Haynes.

The openly gay actor opened up this week about his continuing struggle with depression and I hope he knows how much his honesty is appreciated.

Here is what he’s written on Instagram: Today is #WorldMentalHealthDay. This is a photo I took of myself about a month ago when I had reached a point where I had no idea what to do. I had been in bed crying/paralyzed for 3 wks with no explanation. My personal life & career were at an all time high. I’ve talked about this before but I can’t stress enough how important it is to seek help when your feeling down or in your darkest moments. I’ve struggled with Anxiety & Depression since I was in the 5th grade & it’s not something that should go untreated or uncared for. I know a lot of people don’t understand mental illness & pass it off as ppl being dramatic…but it’s a chemical Imbalance that no one wants to struggle through. It’s not easy. So let’s all take a second to reach out to those in need of help & those who just need someone to talk to or some encouragement. A little love goes a long way. My heart is with my fellow survivors & ppl struggling through this disease…you aren’t alone.

One Remark

  1. I really appreciate Colton Haynes for his openness and honesty. Anxiety and depression are serious and really does need to be addressed. This country also needs to do more for those who suffer from it but don’t have the access to medication. So much unnecessary suffering goes on.

    The more I read about and hear from Mr. Haynes, the more I like him.
