Katie, 44, shared the shock post to her Instagram stories as she revealed she had “been near death” herself due to her own actions.

The mother-of-five penned an emotional message thanking those helping her, including her family, close friends and her kids.

“Everyone seems to be just dying in my industry of work at the moment,”she penned in the post to her stories.

“I’m just sticking to being strong and sticking to therapists advice, and focusing on the future knowing I’ve been near death in causing my own suicide actions that thankfully I survived.

“[I] realised I have a future and life I can only thank the Priory, my consultant and therapist Alan, family, close friends, children.”

Back in 2021, Katie revealed her mental health journey after a stint at The Priory, explaining she was “recovering from PTSD”.

The star went through a difficult time following a single vehicle car accident, which saw a judge order her to undertake treatment.

Katie had flipped her BMW while banned from the road in September 2021, and narrowly escaped jail over the crash.

She took to Instagram to post photos of books, including Recovery from Complex PTSD and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy Skills Training.

Katie was originally diagnosed with co-morbid post-traumatic stress disorder in 2018 and entered The Priory for 28 days to treat it.

Her mum Amy said at the time of her treatment: “Kate has been her own worst enemy and behaved like an idiot at times but she has been tearing herself apart for years.”

Last year, Katie emotionally revealed that her kids saved her from a suicide attempt amid her battle with PTSD and depression.

She opened up about the impact her children Harvey, 20, Junior, 17, Princess, 15, Jett, nine, and Bunny, eight, had on her in her Channel 4 documentary Katie Price: Trauma and Me.

She told her TV show about a “demon in me” being her mental health and said it was her children who pulled her back from the brink.

In a raw quote to camera, she said: “All I saw was the kids’ faces and I never want that to happen again.”

Continuing to open up on her struggles, she said: “I hit a severe depression a couple of years ago, depression on top of PTSD.

“I was suicidal, I didn’t want to be here. When I’m having a down moment it comes out. But I’ve got to keep it at bay because it knows.

“It got me one time when I was weak and it can always be there, it’s controlling it.”

Katie has previously opened up to The Sun exclusively about her reasons for her rehab stint.

She said: “It wasn’t about drugs or drink or nothing like that. I had severe PTSD because I couldn’t cope with all the s**t that was going on.

“I couldn’t cope so I asked for help and I’m proud I did. I told my family, ‘This isn’t me.’ Things were really, really f**king bad. I went to the doctor and said, ‘Help me.’”

Her therapist encouraged her to have a cull of the toxic people in her life and she finished up stronger and ready to start again.
