Celebrated singer and actress Melanie C also known as Mel C, has stated that she had experienced depression in the 1990s, due to a low phase in her career and life at that time.
Mel C revealed that she had struggled a lot with depression during the time she was a member of The Spice Girls. The singer and actress added that she found it difficult to derive a "sense of normality and reality" out of her life and career at that time.
"I think what happened to us was so unique and it was so amazing, but there's loads of repercussions that come with it," Mel C said in a statement.
"Getting some sense of normality and reality, I found that hard and I did suffer from some depression for some time. It's something that I'm aware of and learning more about mental health. And I think people are talking about it more."
Mel said that there are a lot of people, who face this situation yet they suffer in silence. It is important to talk about the problem.
"It's incredible to hear the statistics. Lots of people aren't seeking help and they're suffering in silence. I think it's really important to talk about it. I can't blame my time with the Spice Girls. I think it was just my life experience being a bizarre one," Mel C added.
