Hayden Panettiere is seeking treatment for postpartum depression for the second time in seven months.

The "Nashville" star herself announced the news on Twitter on May 12.

"The postpartum depression I have been experiencing has impacted every aspect of my life," she shared. "Rather than stay stuck due to unhealthy coping mechanisms I have chosen to take time to reflect holistically on my health and life. Wish me luck!"

Us Weekly is reporting that Hayden is headed to a rehab facility in Utah.

Last September, the 26-year-old sought treatment for postpartum depression following the birth of her and fiance Wladimir Klitschko's daughter Kaya in December 2014. In March 2016, she opened up about her struggles to Yahoo! Style.

"I was always so terrified that people weren't going to accept me," she said. "I finally just went, 'I'm tired of living afraid. I'm tired of living in fear of what people are going to think, so you know, I'm just going to put it all out there on the table and I'm not going to worry about the judgment.'"

She added, "The more open I was, the more acceptance I got from people."

In fact, the amount of support surprised her.

"I got so much support and so much love. I was floored," she added. "I feel much more exposed, yes, but in a great way."

During an appearance on "Live With Kelly and Michael" in September 2015, the actress opened up about relating to women who suffer from postpartum.

"I can very much relate. It's something a lot of women experience. When [you're told] about postpartum depression you think it's 'I feel negative feelings towards my child, I want to injure or hurt my child.' I've never, ever had those feelings," she explained. "Some women do. But you don't realize how broad of a spectrum you can really experience that on. It's something that needs to be talked about. Women need to know that they're not alone, and that it does heal."
