JoJo is opening up about her mental struggles, which inspired her new album, Good to Know, revealing that she has been battling depression for 10 years.
“Because there is a history of mental health issues in my family, I didn’t feel any shame seeking help,” she told People magazine.
JoJo says she’s been going to therapy and taking antidepressants since she was 18. Her father struggled with opioid addiction and passed away due to complications from the disease in 2015. JoJo also struggled with abusing alcohol, drinking the point of blackouts starting at age 18 before deciding to change two years later.
