Porn star Honey Gold admitted to mental facility after suicide attempt

Adult film actress Honey Gold has been hospitalized in Las Vegas following a suicide attempt.

The 25-year-old American porn star courageously opened up Saturday about her battle with mental health issues and post-traumatic stress disorder.

‘Recently, I have been struggling with my mental health and trying to deal with the trauma caused by things that have happened in my past,’ Gold wrote in an Instagram post.

Gold, who is of African-Asian descent, did not reveal further detail about the trauma she endured.

The vixen said: ‘I have come to realize they are affecting my life more than I realized. I recognize that I now need to get extensive help.

‘The program I need to recover is beyond my financial capabilities and I would appreciate any donation, no matter how small, to help me get back on my feet.

‘Thank you again for all your support so far and I look forward to seeing you all as soon as I can.’

Gold’s manager and friend, Xhylea Weatherill, also set up a GoFundMe page to help expense her treatment.

‘Honey is a strong, amazing woman who has struggled with mental health like many of us and recently had a time of crisis. 

‘She is currently in the hospital… we’ve found a program that will work for her but in order for her to get the help she needs she needs $14,500 by Monday 11/26 so she can be admitted to the facility with the proper resources and support she needs.

‘She is such a kind, caring soul who I know has touched many lives so let’s help her get healthy so she can live healthy and happily and continue to bless us with her presence,’ Weatherill wrote.

As of early Wednesday evening, the crowdfunding page reached $21,940 of its $48,500 goal. 

Her manager said the full cost of the facility costs $60,000 for 30 days.
