Just after her TV show Nashville was axed, Hayden Panettiere has announced that she is re-entering a treatment facility due to postpartum depression. 

The actress tweeted the news earlier today, claiming she was looking to reflect on her life holistically rather than relying on her current coping mechanisms in the outside world. 

Panettiere has been open and candid about her struggle with postpartum depression after giving birth to her daughter, Kaya, in December 2014.

Hayden had also played a character in Nashville who was suffering from postpartum depression – relying on her own experiences to convey the emotion that is at times kept behind closed doors.

The 26-year-old also opened up about her struggle on the Live! With Kelly and Michael Show last year.
