The Dr. Phil show returns for it’s 16th season this week and begins with an exclusive interview with Irish star Sinéad O’Connor. In the interview she discusses her own battle with mental illness and also alleged abuse by her own mother.
The music star tells Dr. Phil “I’m so grateful and very happy, very excited to be getting some proper help. The fact that there’s such stigma about mental illness means that the illness doesn’t get talked about”
On her mother she explains “Every day of our lives, she ran a torture chamber. She was a person who would delight and smile in torturing you.”
The episode airs in the US tomorrow September 12th.
