Naomi Judd Earlier Opened Up About Her Mental Health Struggles
Naomi Judd earlier admitted in an early interview that she had faced extreme and severe depression, so much so that it forced the singer into reclusion. She further explained how her condition worsened after she and Wynonna stopped touring as The Judds in 2011. Naomi’s daughter Wynonna Judd also issued a statement earlier.
Today we sisters experienced a tragedy. We lost our beautiful mother to the disease of mental illness. We are shattered. We are navigating profound grief and know that as we loved her, she was loved by her public. We are in unknown territory.

Naomi revealed how she would come home and not leave the house for three weeks, not even get out of her pyjamas, and not even practice normal hygiene, things were so bad during that time. The artist candidly talked about her mental health struggles in her 2016 book, “River of Time: My Descent into Depression and How I Emerged with Hope”, where she talked about her suicidal tendencies as Naomi confessed that she had seriously considered taking her own life at a bridge near her farm.
Wynonna Judd also made a similar revelation as she admitted that she was stuck in her sadness and she did not reach out and she was not good at asking for help that’s it which made matters worse.
