Sinead O'Connor sought help from Dr. Phil over mental illness

Sinead O'Connor called Dr. Phil McGraw when she was going through a "difficult time" recently.

The Nothing Compares 2 U singer has a history of mental illness and fans feared for her wellbeing after she posted a near 13-minute video on Facebook in August (17), where she claimed to have been abandoned by her loved ones.

Sinead has since been treated by medical professionals, and during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday night (06Sep17), guest Dr. Phil shared that he had been in contact with the 50-year-old over her issues.

"She actually called me.... She's really had a difficult time and she said look, 'I'm in trouble and need help,'" he said. "She said, 'I want to destigmatise mental illness.' She said, 'I clearly have a problem.' She said, 'Too many musicians are dying - I want to use my life, be a teaching tool and I'm willing to sit down and talk.' And so we did."

While Dr. Phil may have been a little surprised to receive the call from the Irish singer-songwriter, he claimed to be very pleased as he is a "great fan" of hers. He also urged other celebrities to reach out for help to either himself or other medical professionals when they are going through turbulent times.

"Everybody does say, 'I ran out of options,'" the TV host sighed. "They say, 'Dr. Phil, this is my last hope.' I don't know why everybody doesn't call me first before things head off into the ditch."

Most recently, Sinead claimed to be very happy with her medical team and stated she was "beaming" each morning when she woke up. And Dr. Phil noted the star is still singing, and even performs during their chat, which will premiere in the U.S. on 12 September.

"She has not lost her voice by the way, because she sings during this interview," he added.
