Halsey On Her Mental Health: 'I've Been Committed Twice'
Halsey has revealed there were times when her mental health was so bad that she secretly received treatment.
“I’ve been committed twice since [I became] Halsey, and no one’s known about it,” she said in an interview with Rolling Stone. “But I’m not ashamed of talking about it now.”
Halsey said getting professional help is part of being accountable to the people who depend on her for a living.
“I’ve said to [my manager], ‘Hey, I’m not going to do anything bad right now, but I’m getting to the point where I’m scared that I might, so I need to go figure this out.’ It’s still happening in my body. I just know when to get in front of it.”
The feeling of responsibility to the people who work for her is also why, she said, she has given up hard booze, drugs and weed. “I just can’t be out getting f**ked up all the time,” said Halsey.
The pop star, who has previously opened up about her bipolar disorder, added: “I know I'm just going to get f**king depressed and be boring again soon and I hate that that's a way of thinking. Every time I wake up and realize I'm back in a depressive episode, I'm bummed. I'm like, ‘F**k. F**k! This is where we're going now? OK….’”
