The actress was treated at the Priory Clinic and is now well on the road to recovery but still remains an outpatient.
She has now teamed up with mental health charity Mind to raise awareness and to help loosen the stigma surrounding the issue.
She has said a big thank you to her friends, family and colleagues for supporting her through this difficult time. Paul Farmer, chief executive of Mind stressed the fact that the support Beverly received had played a huge step in her recovery.
She also thanked the media for respecting her privacy “Being able to recover out of the media spotlight has hugely helped me and meant that I could return to work last year whilst still receiving treatment as an outpatient”.
Mental Health charity Mind, hope that Beverly’s choice to come forward will encourage others suffering in silence to reach out for help and they urge those that they turn to, to be there for them without judgment.
