Sam Frost still has days where she struggles with mental health 

She’s been vocal about her ongoing struggle with mental health.

And in Saturday’s The Daily Telegraph, Sam Frost revealed that while she feels life is great, she still has days where she struggles.

‘While I am in a much happier headspace than I have ever been, I am still human. I have learnt not to fight it,’ the 29-year-old said.

‘I give myself some TLC,’ she added. 

The former Bachelorette first spoke about her struggle with depression and anxiety in 2015 when she revealed she regularly attended a psychologist to maintain her mental health.

And after a string of personal and professional setbacks in 2016, including the breakdown of her relationship with Sasha Mielczarek, 34, and the axe falling on her high profile 2Day FM breakfast show with Rove McManus, Sam admitted she found herself in a ‘very dark place’.

She told the Herald Sun in 2017: ‘I reached breaking point last year. I was like, “Oh my goodness I am really, really struggling with my mental health”.’

With her personal and professional life in turmoil, Sam told News Corp that same year she spent time with friends and family in Melbourne, before turning to a psychologist to help get her life back on track. 

She revealed: ‘I started seeing her (the psychologist) and I’ve seen her every week since. It is expensive but it is worth it. It costs me a bloody fortune.’

In order to help others suffering, the actress, who’s now dating navy diver Dave Bashford, launched her mental health initiative for young girls and women, Believe by Sam Frost, in June with her sister Kristine.

Sam’s initiative vows to connect participants with a range of helpful resources including mental health professionals.

‘Here you will find uplifting stories of strength and resilience, with advice from psychologists and others who have walked a similar path,’ the website revealed.
