Miller is most known for his role in the TV show Prison Break. He came out as gay in 2013 when he chose to speak out against anti-gay sentiments in Russia. He has also shared that he tried to commit suicide more than once growing up. He also spoke out after being mocked for weight gain during a time when he was suffering from depression.
“Each year, depression affects an estimated 15 million people in the United States and 350 million worldwide,” Miller said in the video. “If depression is part of your story, there is hope. Don’t be afraid to take the first step. Someone cares.”
He encourages those in need to find a support group through the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, and for those in serious crisis to call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK, or text “START” to 741-741.
Other resources available are Trans Lifeline, for trans and gender-nonconforming people considering suicide, at 877-565-8860. LGBT youth (ages 24 and younger) can reach the Trevor Project Lifeline at 1-866-488-7386 or text “Trevor” to 1-202-304-1200
