MARRIED AT First Sight Australia's Jessika Power has revealed she can't stop crying and "feels so down" because she's "going through something".
The 28-year-old star did not share any details about what she is struggling with, but said that she was speaking out to let fans know "it's okay not to be okay".
Taking to her Instagram Story, the reality TV favourite filmed herself in a simple blue dress as she spoke directly to the camera.
In the lengthy video, Jessika explained she "didn't understand" influencers who would post clips of themselves crying on social media.
She continued: "I'm going through something at the moment, I'm really upset and it's gotten me quite down. I have just been crying all night and all day.
"I was sitting in the bathroom to do work, putting my make-up on and trying to pick an outfit to wear and I just sat there like: 'Wow, it's so funny, I'm really down right now and I'm just going to have to smile and put on a mask to get through today'.
"And it scares me that there'd be so many people… My life is great; I have a really good family, amazing friends, and I don't want for much but I just think I'm so down, I can't pull myself out of this hole right now.
"And there's so many people out there who have so much less than me and they feel like this.
"It makes me scared they don't have someone to reach out to or talk to."
Jessika went on: "At the moment, I'm not working with any mental health charities but I just want to put out my Instagram for anybody who is having a rough time.
"I'm happy to speak to anyone who's feeling lonely, or they don't know what to do, or they feel like they don't want to be here anymore because it's a real thing."
She concluded the video: "It's okay to not be okay, so I'm here for you guys."
You’re Not Alone
EVERY 90 minutes in the UK a life is lost to suicide.
It doesn't discriminate, touching the lives of people in every corner of society – from the homeless and unemployed to builders and doctors, reality stars and footballers.
It's the biggest killer of people under the age of 35, more deadly than cancer and car crashes.
And men are three times more likely to take their own life than women.
Yet it's rarely spoken of, a taboo that threatens to continue its deadly rampage unless we all stop and take notice, now.
That is why The Sun launched the You're Not Alone campaign.
The aim is that by sharing practical advice, raising awareness and breaking down the barriers people face when talking about their mental health, we can all do our bit to help save lives.
Let's all vow to ask for help when we need it, and listen out for others… You're Not Alone.

Jessika rose to fame on the 2019 series of Married At First Sight Australia, which has only recently aired in the UK.
Brits were left shocked as they watched her scandalous affair with fellow contestant Dan unfold – behind both of their spouses' backs.
She forced husband Mick to remain in the show so that she could keep seeing Dan, and eventually they were allowed to continue on the series as a couple.
However, things did not work out in the long run, and Jessika went public with new boyfriend Filip earlier this year.
