Jared Padalecki Always Keep Fighting Campaign

Jared Padalecki Always Keep Fighting Campaign.

Supernatural star  Jared Padalecki has launched the #AlwaysKeepFighting Campaign.

 Jared has recently opened up about his own personal battle with depression, and started the Always Keep Fighting campaign to help people struggling with depression, self-injury, addiction and suicide.

He started Always Keep Fighting to benefit To Write Love on Her Arms, an organization which helps people struggling with depression, self-injury, addiction and suicide.

“I, for a long time, have been passionate about people dealing with mental illness and struggling with depression, or addiction, or having suicidal thoughts and, strangely enough, it’s almost like the life I live, as well. These characters that we play on Supernatural, Sam and Dean, are always dealing with something greater than themselves, and I’ve sort of learned from the two of them that they get through it with each other, and with help and with support,” he recently explained to Variety. “And I, in the past, have had my own struggles of not [being] so happy with where I am in life, which is strange and I think it goes to show. … Maybe a lot of people don’t know this, but Season 3, we were shooting an episode, and I went back to my trailer to get changed and just kind of broke down.”

At this years Comic Con Supernatural fans came together to show their support for the actor.The packed audience of more than 7,000 fans held up candles to show their support.
