Hayden Panettiere is restarting treatment for postpartum depression
"Rather than stay stuck due to unhealthy coping mechanisms I have chosen to take time to reflect holistically on my health and life. Wish me luck!"
Hayden, 26, has been very open about her struggles with the disorder, and previously admitted herself into a facility seven months ago to seek help.
The brave actress has also used her personal journey to address the stigma surround PPD. "The biggest message that I've been trying to promote for women is that it's ok to ask for help," she told People in March. "You feel mummy guilt – it's for real."

In another interview with Yahoo Style, she spoke about those people who question postpartum depression. "It's like, you have no idea what you're talking about," she said. "If you think for one second that a mother wants to feel that way towards her child, you are out of your mind. It's one of the most debilitating, scary, guilty feelings that you can ever feel.
"That a mother would not be able to connect with their child, would not be able to get a grip, or would not know what's going on, for anybody to say that's false or created by us, you must have your head examined."
Coincidentally on Thursday, it was revealed that Hayden's ABC TV show Nashville is being cancelled after four seasons. The season four finale, airing on Wednesday, May 25, will now serve as the country drama's series finale.
