‘Below Deck Med’ Stars Hannah Ferrier & Jessica More Bring Awareness To Mental Health

Bravo, News

Below Deck Med Season 5 sure had its shares of ups and downs. The previous episode showed chief stew Hannah Ferrier suffering from a panic attack. Following the emotional episode, Hannah took to social media to share her unique baby shower with fans. She wants to create more awareness for those struggling with mental health disorders.

But she’s not the only one speaking out. Third stew Jessica More is sharing her struggles with anxiety. On Tuesday, August 4, she took to Instagram to share her experience with her followers. Jessica revealed that she empathized with both Hannah and chef Hindrigo “Kiko” Lorran. Kiko’s painful firing led to Hannah’s crumbling emotions.

Jessica More shares her experience with anxiety

As TV Shows Ace previously reported, Below Deck Med star Jessica More admitted she felt like she was “walking on eggshells” around Captain Sandy Yawn. Viewers accused her of creating a toxic work environment. The crew members couldn’t escape her because she watched their every move.

She especially watched chef Kiko’s performance in the caption, which ultimately lead to his shocking termination. While he was a great chef, his positive spirit couldn’t handle Sandy’s constant micromanaging.

As per Reality Tea, Jessica More shared her experience with anxiety on Instagram. She felt bad for both Hannah and Kiko, who both unraveled because of Sandy.

Last night’s episode was hard for me to watch. Everybody loves Kiko & him crying broke my heart. Then Hannah having a panic attack was just emotionally grueling to see, and brought me to instant tears. It’s brave of Hannah to be open with her struggle with anxiety & I want to thank her for that. As a lot of my friends & family know I have been struggling with severe anxiety for about 7 years. I remember my first panic attack so clearly – I thought I was having a heart attack. I woke my roommate in the middle of the night to drive me to the ER and called my mom and dad on the way to tell them I loved them because I truly thought I was about to die. I’ve been struggling on and off ever since. It disappeared completely for a year once and then reappeared out of the blue, returning with a vengeance every day for years. Even though I have tried my best to find methods and coping tools, it’s an everyday battle. We all have our battles one of mine just happens to be anxiety. I felt the need to make a post because I wanted to bring awareness to this topic and be another voice to hopefully help anyone who struggles with this to know that they aren’t alone. Lots of love to everyone and I wish you good health and lots of love! 💜💜#belowdeckmed #anxiety #anxietyawareness

Jessica supported Hannah for speaking out about her mental health. “It’s brave of Hannah to be open with her struggle with anxiety & I want to thank her for that,” she added. This led Jessica to share her journey. While she didn’t have as many struggles on the show, anxiety is still a part of her life. Jessica has dealt with “severe anxiety for about 7 years.” Like Hannah, she too suffered from panic attacks.

Below Deck Med stars want to bring focus to mental health

Jessica More recalls the time she had her first panic attack. Like many others who struggle with anxiety, she thought she was “having a heart attack.” But it hasn’t been an easy road since.

“I’ve been struggling on and off ever since,” Jessica continued. “It disappeared out of the blue, returning with a vengeance every day for years. Even though I have tried my best to find methods and coping tools, it’s an everyday battle.”

Jessica wanted to share her story to lessen the taboo associated with mental health. She hopes others will find comfort in her message.

“We all have our battles one of mine just happens to be anxiety,” she said. “I felt the need to make a post because I wanted to bring awareness to this topic and be another voice hopefully help anyone who struggles with this to know that they aren’t alone.”

BABY SHOWER ANNOUNCEMENT!! Please read on… So what you see if this photo is a very happy, smiley, pregnant woman. What you see in tonight’s episode is a very distressed, upset, stressed out and anxiety ridden woman… They are both the same people – just in different situations. As many of you know I suffer from anxiety which can be brought on by many different things but tonight’s was brought on by seeing my good friend @hindrigolorran in such pain and being unable to help him. This paired with severe lack of sleep and feeling like I was stuck in a situation I didn’t want to be in brought on a panic attack. What you see on TV and what is happening inside someone’s head can often differ. A lot of you have sent me messages asking for my baby register which is so amazing of you. My little one is very blessed that we can provide all they need but in place of that I have set up a baby registry with one of my favourite charities @lifelineaustralia – Lifeline assists people in need with anxiety, desperation and raises awareness for suicide. Any donation large or small would be greatly appreciated and it will be amazing to let my little one know they made a difference before entering the world. 💗💗💗 Thank you for reading x The link is here and in my bio https://fundraise.lifeline.org.au/fundraisers/hannahferrier
