Like a real hero, Zachary Levi is speaking up for mental health and creating awareness every where he goes. He reveals the dark days when he was tormented with suicidal thoughts following his marriage breakup and death of his mother.
Levi said that though his mother was a beautiful and intelligent woman, she suffered from a mental health disorder and took it out on Levi and his siblings.
Levi never learnt to love himself or value his own life. He was very unhappy for a long time and never got help until he was 37 years old. Through therapy Levi learnt to have compassion for his mother and how to be kinder to himself.
Levi says that depression is a really tough thing to deal with but the best way to destigmatise mental illness is to talk about it all the time.
