Actress Lili Reinhart revealed she is back in therapy due to her continuous struggle with anxiety and depression. She is not afraid to admit that she needs help dealing with her mental health issues, as she works on loving herself. In a series of social media messages, the Riverdale star not only revealed her therapy news but also wanted to let her millions of followers know they are not alone.
“Friendly reminder for anyone who needs to hear it. Therapy is never something to feel ashamed of. Everyone can benefit from seeing a therapist. Doesn’t matter how old you are or how ‘proud’ you’re trying to be. We are all human. And we all struggle. Don’t suffer in silence. Don’t feel embarrassed to ask for help,” shared Reinhart on her Instagram stories.

Mental health is a topic the blonde beauty has spoken out about several times over the last couple of years. Therefore, it was not out of the ordinary for her to post about it. However, as it turned out Reinhart had a specific reason that she was encouraging her followers to get help if they need it.
“I’m 22. I have anxiety and depression. And today I started therapy again. And so, the journey of self-love begins for me. And good luck to you on yours,” she wrote in her final message.
Last year Reinhart got real about her struggle with social anxiety. The in-demand starlet admitted to Seventeen magazine that she would much rather stay at home and read a book then go to a social gathering or party. It is an issue that many of her fans can relate to, as they flooded social media with their own stories and support for Reinhart.
On the outside, Lili Reinhart appears to have it all. She is beautiful, works on a hit TV show and has a smoking hot boyfriend, Cole Sprouse. However, she is continually reminding the world she too is human. The 22-year-old is all about speaking authentically, even if it causes a backlash.
Other than keeping her relationship with Sprouse private, Reinhart is open about body shaming, her insecurities, not being perfect and wanting to be the right role model for young girls. Her honesty and openness are just another reason people admire her.
