Harry Potter actor celebrated World Mental Health Day by coming out about his battles with depression.

Actor Devon Murray took to Twitter to reveal that not only did he suffer from depression, but he had thoughts of suicide.

“I’ve been battling depression in silence for ten years & only recently spoke about it and has made a huge difference #worldmentalhealthday,” he said.

Murray is best known for his role of  Seamus Finnigan in the Harry Potter films.

“I had suicidal thoughts this year and that was the kick up the arse that I needed! Open up, talk to people. If you suspect a friend or family member is suffering in silence #ReachOut to them. Let them know you care #worldmentalhealthday,” he continued.

Shortly after, he received an outpouring of support from Twitter fans.

“I’m so happy that from me opening up it helped so many of you find the strength to. We are all loved and cared about by those around us #talk,” he wrote. “I’m also so thankful for all the kind messages of support yesterday. So much love for you all.”
