Dwayne Johnson opens up about depression/suicide

Apr 2, 2018 - by Steve Gerweck

The Rock says he struggled with depression as a teenager when his mother Ata nearly commited suicide:

“She got out of the car on Interstate 65 in Nashville and walked into oncoming traffic. Big rigs and cars were swerving out of the way. I grabbed her and pulled her back on the gravel shoulder of the road. What’s crazy about that suicide attempt is that to this day, she has no recollection of it whatsoever. Probably best she doesn’t.”
