Lady Gaga has shared her personal experience to demonstrate that the health system was failing to deal with mental problems and that more resources should be allocated to the medical corps.

The singer gave a 23 minute speech, receiving an award from the non-profit association, SAG-AFTRA Foundation.

“I began to notice that I stared at the space and that I had a black-out of several seconds or minutes. I saw things that me tormented by the flashes, of the experiences which had remained in a corner of my mind in the “I will take care of it later”, because my brain was protecting me, as science has taught us.

This was also the symptoms of dissociation and of post-trauma and I didn’t have a team that supports the mental health. This was later transformed into chronic pain, fibromyalgia, panic attacks, a spiral debilitating, which also includes a masochistic behavior and suicidal thoughts,” she said.

The actress (A Star Is Born regrets not having had anyone, at the time, to take charge of their health.

“I would have liked it to have a system put in place to protect me and guide me. A system to give me the strength to say no to things that I feel the need to do. A system that gives me the strength to stay away from work environments toxic and / or working with people whose behaviour is seriously questionable,” she added.
