She said, “The loss, the pain, and death were awful. But also the effect that it had on our children, our families and our politics on all of this.” It brought out something that was needed, but it also changed the course of my life in an extremely, very complex way.

Sweetin acknowledged that she was struggling with her mental health and said her family did well in quarantine.

“As semismooth sailing was it for us, but I can’t picture what other people are going though,” she stated. “I feel that this kind of collective trauma has really affected us and I believe it’s going to have an impact on people’s mental well-being in ways that aren’t obvious yet.”

Sweetin is open and honest about past mental health issues. In 2019, she marked World Mental Health Day by sharing a selfie she described as “picture of a mom who had a full panic attack in the bathroom that day.”
