Kid Cudi Has Checked Into Rehab To Get Treatment For Depression
Kid Cudi has checked himself into rehab to get treatment for his depression and suicidal urges.
Choosing to share his struggle with the world, Kid Cudi, real name Scott Mescudi, posted on Facebook on Tuesday night.
In the very open and personal post he wrote that he was 'not at peace' and that he'd been 'living a lie'. The post has attracted thousands of comments from fans, thanking him for opening up and wishing him a quick recovery.
In the post he promises that he'll 'be back, stronger, better. Reborn.' Sadly, he also apologises and writes that he 'feels like shit'.
The fact that Kid Cudi feels the need to apologise and writes that he 'feels ashamed' while he talks about his battle with depression tells us all that, when it comes to mental health, we've still got a long way to go.
We all wish him the very best and hope he's feeling better soon.
