Cara Delevingne Confesses To Being 'Completely Suicidal' While Battling Depression As A Teen

| Filed under: Kate MossDemi LovatoHealthCara Delevingne

Cara shares her experience with depression.

Following in Demi Lovato's lead, Cara Delevingne also wants to open up a forum for mental health.

She has previously (and bravely) talked about suffering from depression as a teen, even sharing that she was suicidal.

Well, at last week's Women In The World conference held in London, the 23-year-old decided to continue to talk about her experience. Cara divulged that not even her family could help her:

"I was completely suicidal, didn't want to live anymore. I thought that I was completely alone," wanting "the world to swallow me up, and nothing seemed better to me than death."

With the help of therapy and anti depressants, she also went on to say that it was actually supermodel Kate Moss who "kind of picked me up off the floor."

Cara's clearly found a friend in the 41-year-old. It's no wonder the two are so close!

While she believes it was writing and acting that ended up "saving her life", she also believes:

"It's about finding people around you have your best interests at heart. I had a lot of people around me who were just after what I gave them…not looking after [me]."

True friendships really do make a huge difference! We're glad the blonde beauty's found a group who appreciate her!

Of course, Cara wants others going through similar struggles to know:

"Mental illness and depression is not something to be ashamed of… My message has always been to accept yourself no matter what, to love yourself, to embrace your flaws. I think flaws are the things that make us special."

You're not alone.

We so love that she's taking a stand for mental health! You can watch her whole inspiring talk (below)!
