He watched as his mother attempt suicide at 15. His own depression would come thereafter, through a series of heartbreaking failures.

It took him and his mother years, but they were able to heal. The Rock is hopeful that others would find their own inner strength and beat depression, as well. For him, the important thing is that people don’t feel alone.

Did these ‘The Rock’ quotes touch a nerve with you?

Although Dwayne Johnson battled with depression for years, it’s only recently that he was able to open up about it. He shared his experience mostly to help others feel that there’s someone out there who understands.

According to data from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), 16.2 million adults in the United States experienced at least one main depressive episode in 2016. Raising awareness on this issue will hopefully let people come together – so no one would need to suffer in silence.
