Singer Lady Gaga wrote a moving letter about her struggle with post-traumatic stress disorder.
In the letter, she addresses how difficult it has been for her to open up about her mental illness because of the stigma attached to it, and she also opens up about the physical and emotional toll that PTSD has had on her.
She ends off the letter by encouraging those struggling with mental illness to be hopeful because help is available and to be fearless in facing the illness head on.
