Témoignage : Cara Delevingne opens up about depression

le 28 octobre 2015

[USA Today] Cara Delevingne has never shied away from talking about her personal life, and struggles, with the press and her fans, but the model-turned-actress is now opening up about her mental health.

Speaking with Rupert Everett for London's Women in the World Summit, Delevingne got very candid about her struggle with depression as a teenager. She explained:

"I really wanted to do well at school to please my parents, to please my family. I didn’t really care that much about school because I knew I was never going to be very good at it. I think I pushed myself so far, I got to the point where I had a bit of a mental breakdown."

Delevingne revealed that she had suicidal thoughts during this time as well:

"I got to the point where I was a bit mad. I was completely suicidal, didn’t want to live anymore. I thought that I was completely alone. I also realized how lucky I was and what a wonderful family, wonderful friends I had, but that didn’t matter. I wanted the world to swallow me up, and nothing seemed better to me than death.”
