The actress took to her Twitter on May 12 to explain her decision to enter a rehab clinic to help her with coping mechanisms for her depression.
“The postpartum depression I have been experiencing has impacted every aspect of my life,” she tweeted. “Rather than stay stuck due to unhealthy coping mechanisms I have chosen to take time to reflect holistically on my health and life. Wish me luck!”
Fans immediately responded to the post, letting her know they are thinking about her and cheering her on with great support.
Panettiere has been quite vocal about her dealings with post-partum depression since the birth of her daughter, Kaya, with fiancée Wladimir Klitschko. Her personal connection to the cause has helped a lot of other new moms in their diagnoses of the struggle and shed a positive light on getting the necessary treatment to keep healthy.
Sending Panettiere all the best wishes for a happier, healthier life as she enters treatment.
