Madelaine Petsch is speaking candidly about her split from Travis Mills.
The 26-year-old Riverdale actress opened up about how her break up with the 31-year-old musician impacted her mental health.
“My mental health was at an all time low,” Madelaine shared with Flaunt. “Every day was definitely a challenge and therapy was absolutely key for me to keep sane.”
Madelaine and Travis broke up in February 2020 after three years of dating. After the split, Madelaine turned to therapy, friends, and reading to help her get emotional support.
“My best friend moved in with me and that was a huge game changer for my mental health,” Madelaine said. “I found ways to be creative while staying positive and reading books. I read this book called Vibrate Higher Daily, and it’s basically about how to radiate positivity. And I found more books to help me navigate.”
Madelaine also said that it took her five months into the pandemic to get “back to an okay mental state.”
“I had a lot of anxiety over quarantine, and I felt like without my job and without Riverdale, I didn’t know what my identity was,” Madelaine shared. “I’m saying this because I don’t want anyone to feel like they’re alone. I’m in the same boat and I feel it, and I’m right there with them.”
She continued, “Even though there are days where I was really struggling, just to remember three things that I was grateful for—whether that be the roof over my head, or the food in my mouth—to start and end the day with really changed my mindset.”
New episodes of Riverdale air on Wednesdays at 8pm ET on The CW.
