Selena Gomez in Mental Health Facility After "Emotional Breakdown".
Selena Gomez was hospitalized twice in the last 2 weeks. The second time she suffered what's being called an emotional breakdown. She's now at a mental health facility for treatment.
She was at her home the last week of September when the first emergency hit. She was emotional over an alarmingly low white blood cell count in the wake of her kidney transplant. She was released days later but had to be re-admitted late last week because her low blood cell count persisted, adding more stress to a downward emotional spiral.
After she was admitted she insisted on leaving, but doctors said she couldn't. She apparently had "a meltdown" and "freaked out" and tried ripping the IV's out of her arm.
She's currently at an East Coast psychiatric facility and is receiving dialectical behavior therapy, or DBT. The therapy treats various mental health disorders. Selena has received DBT in the past.
Selena posted on September 23 she was taking a break from social media. Before leaving social media she did an Instagram Live answering questions from fans and said depression had consumed her life for 5 years.
Get well soon, Selena!
