It’s an illness the 23-year-old has battled with since she was a teenager, with suicidal thoughts haunting her at times.
“I think I pushed myself so far that I got to the point where I had a mental breakdown. I got to the point where I went a bit mad. I was completely suicidal, I didn’t want to live anymore,” she said in the interview.
“I thought that I was completely alone. I also realized how lucky I was, and what a wonderful family and wonderful friends I had, but that didn’t matter. I wanted the world to swallow me up.”
Despite finding success as a model Cara told the audience that those depressive feelings just don’t go away. “In our culture we are told that if we are beautiful, if we are skinny, if we are successful, famous, if we fit in, if everyone loves us, that we’ll be happy. But that’s not entirely true,” she said.
Cara also detailed her experience with anti-depressants and therapy, and gave credit to yoga and learning how to say “no” for helping her cope with depression.
