“I’m hopeful that the taboo of it is all going away, because more and more people are talking about it,” Pink tells Carson in an interview to air on NBC News’ Today on Friday, April 26.
“I think talking about it is the most important thing. And I know that anxiety is, like, the number one thing that kids now are going through,” Pink explained.
The Grammy winner, 39, has been open about her own struggles with depression before. And she’s adamant that people should know that talking about mental health is OK — and should be actually be encouraged.
“For my generation, I feel like it was depression and suicide. And suicide is super prevalent still, but now it’s like it comes from a place of anxiety,” she says.
“And I get that. I fully understand that, and I’ve been depressed, I have anxiety. I overthink everything,” she added.
The What About Us singer reveals she’s now proactive about dealing with her issues and having a support system, including making sure that she has “the right people around me”.
Speaking of her marriage to husband, Carey Hart, she admits: “Carey and I have been in couples’ counselling almost our entire 17 years that we’ve been together. It’s the only reason we’re still together.”
Pink and Corey married in 2006 and had two separate splits (though they never got divorced) before re-committing to each other.
The couple share daughter, Willow, 7, and son, Jameson, 2.
