Big Bang Theory star opens up about mental health battle

Bialik has starred on The Big Bang Theory since 2010, snapping up four Emmy Award nominations along the way. However, before that she had a prolific acting career that started before she was even in her teens.

While the award-winning actor has previously told reporters about seeing a therapist since the age of 18, this is the first time she has spoken publicly about the extent of her past mental health issues.

Fellow actor Ryan Reynolds opened up about his own struggle with mental health last week, telling a New York Times reporter he uses the meditation app Headspace to deal with panic attacks.
