Then, friends told The Daily Beast, she took the sash and laid it at his grave, a way of dedicating the milestone to her lost love.
The star penned: 'For years I have dedicated myself to increasing awareness of mental health and empowering people to recognise when it's time to seek help, support and guidance from those that love and care for your wellbeing.
'I recently listened to the same advice I have given to thousands around the world and sought help from a great team of healthcare professionals.
'Today I proudly, happily and healthily stand here as someone who will continue to always lead by example as I tirelessly advocate for the betterment of those in need.'
