Singer Tom Grennan, who recently married his partner Danniella Carraturo in Mallorca, has revealed a difficult period in his life where he battled mental health issues.

The 29-year-old musician, known for his openness about mental health, spoke to broadcaster Roman Kemp for charity YoungMinds.

Grennan described a time when he felt overwhelmed: “Something dramatically happened to me where I just found myself in a sinking hole. I couldn’t get out of bed; I thought the whole world was against me.”

He turned to music to express his emotions: “I never had been somebody who would talk about my feelings.  I was singing these lyrics that I was writing that were really telling myself what’s going on.”

Music can lead to greater connections

Grennan says writing his music led to a deeper connection with his mother: “I think that’s where a real connection happened between me and my mum. I could really open up to her and start talking about what was going on.”

Therapy also played a crucial role in Grennan’s recovery: “I went to therapy, and I found somebody who really understood what I was going through and how it helped me direct these thoughts and put them into context.”

Grennan’s story highlights the importance of self-expression and seeking help for mental health challenges.
