Mark Duplass opens up about his decades-long struggle with anxiety and depression.
The producer and star of “The Morning Show” took to Instagram with an update on his mental health.
“I have suffered from anxiety and depression for most of my life,” he wrote. “Sometimes it’s just a subtle feeling that something deep inside me is wrong. Sometimes it’s a little louder and it affects my ability to function properly. And sometimes it bursts through my front door and pins me to the ground for an unknown and seemingly insurmountable amount of time.
He continued: “When I see photos of myself like this, I can see the fear and sadness behind the smile. Even in my happiest moments. But in times like these, when the world is so profoundly terrifying and saddening, it’s a fight to stay standing and avoid falling apart.
Duplass said he was coming “from the perspective of someone with years of experience in this field and excellent support systems…daily exercise, 8 hours of sleep, the right medications, excellent therapist, a loving and supportive family, the ability to eat. healthy foods, etc.
“So I wanted to take a moment to send my love and support to any of you who may be facing something similar,” he wrote. “I know we’ve heard all the platitudes before, but sometimes it’s good to hear them again. You’re not alone. There is help. This will pass.”
His “Morning Show” co-star Jennifer Aniston commented on the post with a heart emoji.
Duplass concluded his message by giving information to anyone who may need help.
“If you find yourself somewhere new and scary, please text/call/chat to ‘988’ and there will be someone available 24/7 to help you. Sending you all a great explosion of resilience, light and love,” he wrote.
