Jesinta Campbell was her now-husband Buddy Franklin’s pillar of strength and support when he stepped down from playing in the AFL finale series last year after battling with mental health issues.
Now, in a new interview, the 25-year-old newlywed is opening up about her own private mental health struggles, revealing that she regularly seeks professional help to “download all my worries and stresses”.
“I am not ashamed to say that I see a professional regularly myself,” Campbell told OK! Magazine.
“I don’t have any fear of talking about it and being open about my mental health or helping those around me feel more comfortable talking about it.”
The model and presenter said she feels “so much better” after every session.
What a week!! My heart swells with pride for your victorious year. What you have achieved personally I admire far more than any goal, milestone or win you could ever be a part of!! It was amazing to witness you play in another GF this year and although the loss is sad, I feel like we’ve won on so many different levels this year and that’s what truly matters in life ✨ You have inspired me so much.
