Madelaine Petsch is getting candid about mental health.
The Riverdale star, who struggled with panic attacks before landing the role of Cheryl Blossom on the CW series, is opening up about the "stigma" around therapy. For her NYLON August Choice issue cover story, the 24-year-old actress shares how therapy has helped her work through her anxiety.
"Talk about stigma, dude," Petsch tells the outlet. "I mean, I didn't even know what it was, but I used to get really bad panic attacks right before I booked Riverdale. Then, I started getting really bad social anxiety, and I only was able to home in on what those things are and work through them [with therapy]."
