The 100 Actress Lindsey Morgan Opens Up About Depression Battle
Mental health is one of the most important issues in society today, but some people are still uncomfortable talking about it. Celebrities like Demi Lovato, Lili Reinhart, Colton Haynes and more are all doing their best to break the stigma, and now The 100 actress Lindsey Morgan is also speaking up about her own battle with depression.
“I became super stressed, depressed and miserable because I thought I was terrible at my job when I could not perform flawlessly every day, every scene,” she shared in the latest issue of Style Verify.
While the 27-year-old now feels comfortable opening up about dealing with depression and mental health struggles, she once kept it all to herself and suffered in silence.
She continued, “I gained weight, my face broke out, I stopped sleeping… but I suffered in silence. I never told anyone how unhappy I was…”
We’re sure Lindsey felt mixed emotions about being so open to the public, but fans are making sure she knows she made the right decision.

My poor girl You're strong for fighting this alone. Those who struggle with this, ARE STRONG. No matter how you choose to fight this. You're strong for defeating/overcome something others don't know about. Mental health is important, just like physical health.
