The English-born actress and activist, 34, took to Instagram on Thursday in honor of World Suicide Prevention Day writing a powerful passage about attempting to take her life seven years ago.

“Surviving suicide has been the most extraordinary gift to me in being able to still be here and remind the people I love that sometimes it’s just a particularly overwhelming hour, day, week or month. And that it can and normally will pass, and that with even small incremental changes and reaching out to even just one person for help, life really can get better. Please hang on,” she wrote.

She then posted a sweet photo of herself with boyfriend singer/songwriter James Blake and their pooch with the words “I have everything I need” at the bottom of the pic. Jamil also added the caption, “Glad I stuck around in the end. Got to meet my two Favourite lads. #suicidepreventionday”
