The Black panther Actress opens up about her struggle with depression after the debut of the movie. She mentioned, ““In the black community, it’s something that happens, but we don’t speak about it. We have to continue to talk about it and bring it straight to the forefront,” said Wright who confirmed she has battled depression. “And [that doesn’t only apply to] the black community but different races as well.”
“I speak boldly about [depression] because I struggled with it and I tried to find different ways [to heal], and it just didn’t work. I had to look deeper to find what could hold me, and I found that what held me together was my relationship with Jesus and my relationship with God,” she continued.
Her openness about the topic has also led other individuals in similar situations to reach out to her. She mentioned ““Even to this day, I’ll be at events and people will pull me to the side and tell me that they deal with the [situations] that I’ve dealt with. And I’m grateful because I want people to find a way out,”.
