n a recent interview the celebrated singer-songwriter and actress Lady GaGa reveals that, she has mental illness and suffers from PTSD.
While in a visit to the 'Ali Forney Center for homeless LGBT youth', the songstress opened up regarding her illness for the first time.
"I don't have the same kinds of issues that you have, but I have a mental illness, and I struggle with that mental illness every day. So, I need my mantra to help keep me relaxed." Said Lady GaGa.
She explained saying, "I told the kids today I suffer from a mental illness - I suffer from PTSD. I've never told anyone that before, so here we are."
The pop star also added that she is trying her best to get rid of this illness and she has been able to heal fast because of the love and kindness she has received in her life.
"But the kindness that's been shown to me by doctors - as well as my family and my friends - it's really saved my life. I've been searching for ways to heal myself, and I've found that kindness is the best way." she stated.
"One way to help people that have trauma is to inject them with as many positive thoughts as possible. It's really important to remind kids that our suffering from a traumatic experience or abandonment, to remind them that they're not alone, and that they're loved." GaGa added.
