Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson speaks on his battles with depression.

While visiting “The Pivot” podcast, the former WWE wrestler talked about the early stages of his life and not knowing much about mental health. “I left school, but the interesting thing at the time is, I didn’t know what mental health was,” he said while speaking about his time at the University of Miami. “I didn’t know what depression was. I just knew I didn’t want to be there.” 

Johnson went on to open up about his battle with depression after his divorce from his first wife, Dany Garcia. “I knew what it was at that time and luckily I had some friends that I could lean on and say, ‘Hey I’m feeling a little wobbly now. I got a little struggle happening.’” 

He also stated that men “normally keep a head down and work mentality, which isn’t always healthy.”  Do you agree with Dwayne Johnson on his point of view about mental health?
