Queer Eye's Karamo Brown has revealed that he tried to commit suicide 12 years ago.
In a new video posted on Instagram, the Netflix star opens up about his mental health struggles and shared the news to his followers that he attempted suicide in 2006.
"Hey friends, so I decided to do a quick little video about the fact that I shared that today in 2006, I did attempt to commit suicide," he explained.
"You know, I was in very dark place. I just felt like life could not get any better. Everything that was happening to me was never going to change and I tried to take my own life."
He continued, "And if it wasn't for my best friends Raymond and Tre calling the ambulance and getting me off the couch, I probably would not be here today."
After sharing the video, Karamo's fans have flooded the comments with messages of support.
His Queer Eye co-star Joanthan Van Ness also joined in.
"Vulnerability shows such strength & helps to remove the stigma around mental illness. Thanks bae," he wrote. "If anyone ever needs someone to talk to @TrevorProject is always there."
