The 31-year-old explained in the caption:

“*trigger warning* 2 years into my abusive relationship I resorted to self harm. When my abuser would threaten or attack me, I cut my wrist as a way to disarm him. It only made the abuse stop temporarily. At that point I was desperate to stop the relentless abuse and I was too terrified to leave. #IAmNotOk”

That same day, the thespian also shared snaps from a photoshoot where she was “emaciated, severely depressed, and could barely stand” because she “was so weakened by an abusive relationship.” After falling “into a pool of tears,” Wood was sent home early.

The North Carolina-native opened up about her past as part of the “I Am Not OK” movement, whose focus is to spread awareness about physical abuse.

In a January 2019 essay for Nylon, Wood revealed she once attempted suicide when she was 22. She wrote:

“I am not a mental health expert, but I can share with you one of my experiences with it. When I was 22, I willingly checked myself into a psychiatric hospital, and I have absolutely no shame about it. Looking back, it was the worst, best thing that ever happened to me. It was morning; I felt as though I had been hit by a truck. Then with an almost hysterical acceptance, without thinking, I picked up the phone. It was one of those moments when you have a choice that goes beyond the initial choice you make by calling out for help: You can not die, or you can come back to life. ‘Mom?… It’s me… I just tried to kill myself… I need to go to a hospital.’ When I said I needed to go to a hospital, I did not mean I needed to go for any physical injuries I may or may not have had. I meant a hospital for my state of mind.”

In October 2017, Rachel posted a YouTube video where she got real about her experiences with sexual assault.

While she described her alleged abusers as “very powerful, very rich, very entitled, very narcissistic white men,” she refused to name names, explaining:

“I haven’t named my abusers for a number of reasons. One, I’m one person against some very powerful people. Two: money and time and re-traumatizing yourself, go after the person who assaulted you takes quite a toll. It’s a terrifying thing to go through, mainly because you are at the risk of not being believed, your career being hurt, you being drained of your finances because it costs a lot of money to file a lawsuit and go to court with someone, especially if all you have is your word against theirs. And especially if these are very powerful people.”
