Tragedy struck the family of Taylor Spreitler (ex-Mia, DAYS OF OUR LIVES) when her father, Danny, committed suicide.

“Today my heart is hurting,” the actress posted in a heartfelt message on July 7. “My dad took his own life due to his struggles with depression. I am deeply saddened and will miss him dearly as he was my inspiration and biggest cheerleader.”

Spreitler has now taken on the mission to help educate people on depression and urge those suffering to seek help.

Spreitler also asked that her family’s privacy be respected during this time so they can heal from this devastating blow. “Thank you for all the love and support,” she concluded.

Our thoughts go out to Spreitler and her entire family during this difficult time.
