More and more celebrities have been advocating for mental health awareness, including Evan Rachel Wood. Last year, the Westworld actress gave a moving testimony to Congress about her experiences as a victim of sexual abuse to show her support for the Sexual Assault Survivors' Bill of Rights Act. Then, in January, Wood wrote an essay about what it was like to check herself into a psychiatric hospital in her early 20s, and how her mental health journey has progressed since that time.

Now, the 31-year-old actress is sharing her experience with a unique form of psychotherapy, called eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, or EMDR. (Related: Ariana Grande Shared a Brain Scan Showing "Terrifying" PTSD Trauma)
