25-year-old adult film actress Honey Gold was admitted to the hospital after a suicide attempt in Las Vegas. Following this, she opened up about her longtime battle with mental health problems.

After surviving her suicide attempt, Gold decided to share her story with fans in order to raise awareness on the importance of mental health. In a detailed Instagram post, she wrote, "Recently, I have been struggling with my mental health and trying to deal with the trauma caused by things that have happened in my past." She continued, "I have come to realize they are affecting my life more than I realized. I recognize that I now need to get extensive help."



 

The star, along with the help of friends, fans and fellow performers, launched a campaign to pay for her mental health treatment. "The program I need to recover is beyond my financial capabilities and I would appreciate any donation, no matter how small, to help me get back on my feet."

She thanked her fans in advance for their support, "Thank you again for all your support so far and I look forward to seeing you all as soon as I can."

A follow-up post on Instagram shed further light on Gold's difficult situation, the post read, “Honey has struggled with mental health as many of us do and recently she attempted to take her own life,” it said. “She is alive and okay, but needs intensive care and mental health care, which is very expensive.”



 

News.com.au reports that Xhylea Weatherill, Honey's manager and close friend, set up a GoFundMe page with the goal of raising $US48,500 to help her get treatment. A total of $21,000 has been raised so far which has helped Gold join a 30-day treatment facility. Weatherhill said, "She is such a kind, caring soul who I know has touched many lives so let’s help her get healthy so she can live healthy and happily and continue to bless us with her presence."

Other adult performers took to social media to show their support for Gold and her condition. Multiple award-winning male performer Seth Gamble wrote, “I know what’s it like to need help and one of the hardest things to do is ask for it please help this brave woman.” Romi Rain added, “I support you @HoneyGoldxx, it’s a hard time of year for many but what’s even harder is admitting you need help & seeking it. If you are a fan of hers, please check out her page. A little kindness can go a long way. I hope to see your pretty smile soon!”
