Dwayne Johnson Opens Up About Devastating Battle with Depression


Johnson told the United Kingdom outlet that he witnessed his mother's suicide attempt when he was just 15 years old.

Johnson recounted that he was 15 when he saw his mother, Ata, walked right into oncoming traffic on Interstate 65 at Nashville shortly as soon as these had been evicted out of his flat. He says he grabbed her and pulled her to the shoulder.

The wrestler-turned-actor has been open about his struggles with the debilitating condition in the past, and he recounted the personal trauma from his youth as he promoted his new movie, Rampage, over the weekend, according to Britain's The Express.

"We both healed but we've always got to do our best to pay attention when other people are in pain", he said.

"We all go thru the sludge/s- and depression never discriminates", Johnson continued. It took me some time, but I'm grateful for that clarify.

Johnson - known to many by his ring name "The Rock" - said he got to the stage in his life where he "didn't want to do a thing or go anywhere". "Actually, you can erase that last part about 'no ill will.' We'll just keep it with the clarity".

The star of last year's Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle movie added: "What's insane about that suicide attempt is that to this day, she has no recollection of it whatsoever. You're not alone", he writes.

Johnson's words come as athletes and professionals have opened up about the mental health struggles they face. "Big rigs and cars swerving outta the way not to hit her".

Johnson reminded his followers to voice their struggles and help others through theirs.

He added: "What's insane about that suicide attempt is that to this day, she has no recollection of it whatsoever". When a fan recently told him he was suffering depression, Johnson answered: "I hear you".

Speaking on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Rock said: 'We're expecting probably within the next two weeks so I'm on Code Red, high alert...

He signed a contract with WWE and went on to become one of the most successful stars in their history headlining arenas all around the world.

In the Express, Johnson recalled his battle with depression - a topic he often discusses and doesn't shy away from.
