Whether it comes to her music or personal life, Pink has always been one to speak her mind and never shies away from discussing topics that are taboo or uncomfortable.
When it comes to mental health issues, Pink is especially candid and honest, whilst also encouraging others to do the same with people close to them and those they trust.
Speaking to Carson Daly on the Today Show, Pink stated that she was happy that the taboo regarding the discussion of mental health is going away and more people are talking about it.
She depicted the link between mental health and suicide, saying that during her generation, there was a very real correlation between depression and suicide, a relationship that still exists in our current generation, albeit in the form of anxiety instead of depression.
According to her, it really helps to have the right people around you and also actively seeking therapy to resolve issues.
The singer also revealed that therapy helped to save her relationship with husband Carey Hart, and that the couple has been undergoing couples therapy for the past 17 years, going as far as to say it’s the only reason the two are still together.
The couple has been through a lot in their 14 years of marriage after tying the knot back in 2006, after which they have had two splits, but never got divorced before eventually re-committing to each other and having two daughters Willow and Jameson, 7 and 2 years of age respectively.
Speaking about her relationship with Carey, Pink admits that counseling was indeed a challenge since he speaks fluent polish whilst Pink only speaks English and Italian, so it was difficult to get the message across and understand each other completely during their therapy sessions.
Furthermore, since both of them came from broken families, there was no role model for them to look up to or take advice from, so neither of them had any idea how to do it right.
When it comes to mental challenges and issues, Pink believes it can be therapeutic and helpful to engage in creative and artistic activities which can be an outlet for bottled-up emotions or angst.
She revealed that this is what brought her to the music industry in the first place, since writing songs is her form of therapy- a way of exorcising her demons just by writing about them and putting ink to paper.
