Sinead O'Connor's Facebook Rant On Mental Health


Sinead O'Connor left fans concerned after an emotional 12-minute rant about mental health on Facebook.

In a video message posted on Facebook from a motel in new Jersey where she's been staying, the singer says she's fighting to stay alive as she discussed her mental health.

The 50 year old, who had a worldwide number one in 1990 with the Prince song Nothing Compares 2 U, admits being lonely and appears to be appealing to her family for help.

In the video, she said: "I'm now living in a Travelodge motel all by myself and there's absolutely nobody in my life except my doctor, my psychiatrist who is the sweetest man on earth who says I'm his hero.

"I'm fighting, fighting, fighting like all the millions and millions that I know of to stay alive every day, which I'm doing because I love the people who are doing this to me.

"I want everyone to know what it's like, that's why I'm making this video.

"Mental illness, it's like drugs, it doesn't give a s*** who you are, and equally what's worse, it's the stigma, it doesn't give a s*** who you are.

"Suddenly all the people who are supposed to be loving you and taking care of you are treating you like s***. It's like a witch hunt."
