Fans honor Jared Padalecki for his brave battle against depression

July 13, 2015 Jared Padalecki

Jared Padalecki's got a massive backing. The Supernatural actor was overwhelmed by the support he received from his fans at the San Diego Comic Con as they paid tribute to his battle against depression.

Over 7,000 fans supported his decision to open up about his personal struggles by unexpectedly lighting candles in the audience. The campaign even got a name - Always Keep Fighting.

The drive was set up to support those dealing with mental illness and struggling with depression, addiction and suicidal thoughts.

"This is so touching and humbling and honoring," Padalecki told his fans "I don't have the proper words to say thank you or how humbled and honored and excited I am and keep it up, guys. Thank y'all so much."

The star revealed his battle against depression to Variety earlier this year and explained the aim of his campaign.

"There's no shame in having to fight every day," he said, explaining his new campaign. "But fighting every day, and presumably, if you're still alive to hear these words or read this interview, then you are winning your war. You're here. You might not win every battle. There are going to be some really tough days. There might be several tough times in any given single day, but hopefully, this will help somebody to think, 'This isn't easy; it is a fight, but I'm going to keep fighting.'"
