Phillip Schofield has admitted that talking to others helped him get through his darkest moments as he struggled to come to terms with being gay.
The 58-year-old came out on This Morning in February and in a subsequent interview revealed that he had pondered taking his own life, only to be 'hauled back' by his wife and two daughters.
In a post on Twitter, Schofield shared a link to a fundraiser for mental health charity Guernsey Mind which had been started by a grieving mother who lost her young son to suicide less than a week ago.
The presenter captioned his post: "Another heartbreaking story. There is strength in talking. Please don't try to fight your head on your own. Talking saved me #bekind #talk"
Schofield is also the face of ITV's recent campaign to promote Mental Health Awareness Week.Follow us on Twitter @SMEntsFeed and like us on Facebook for the latest entertainment news alerts.
