Hayden Panettiere says she’s taking time to “reflect holistically” on her health and life amid her battle with postpartum depression.

In a message posted on Twitter Thursday, Panettiere (pan-uh-tee-EHR’) says depression “has impacted every aspect” of her life. She says she’s taking time to reflect on the issue “rather than stay stuck due to unhealthy coping mechanisms.”

The 26-year-old also sought treatment for the condition in October.

Panettiere’s daughter with boxer Wladimir Klitschko (VLAD’-uh-meer KLICH’-koh), Kaya, was born in December 2014.

The tweet came on the same day ABC announced that it had cancelled Panettiere’s country music drama, “Nashville,” after four seasons.
