Riverdale's Lili Reinhart Writes Powerful Message About Mental Health

Lili Reinhart has always been open about her struggle with depression, and today is no different.

In honor of Mental Health Awareness month, the Riverdale actress opened up about how deep of a depression she was in when the show came and how grateful she is.

“Exactly one year ago today, we found out that Riverdale was getting picked up for an entire season. I remember how I felt when I found out. I cried tears of joy. In that moment I became a working actress with a steady job. Something I had been working towards for 7 years and now here we are, gearing up to film season 2. And I could not be more grateful.

Riverdale came into my life when I was going through the worst depression I had ever experienced. And in the end it completely saved me,” Lili shares.

“Since it’s mental health awareness month, I figured it would be good to share that. I worked my ass off to make a living out of what I love and when I’m feeling depressed or sad, I remind myself how far I’ve come. And how I didn’t let my depression consume me.

“To anyone out there who feels depressed or hopeless… do not f****** give up on yourself. You’re all you’ve got. And you deserve the world. Your mental health should be your priority. Don’t forget that. This is your life.. and you’ve only got one. So don’t waste it by being sad. You will get through whatever you’re going through now. And you’ll be so much stronger at the end of it. You’re stronger than you know.”
