5SOS’ Michael Clifford Opens Up About His Struggles With Mental Health During Concert
So it’s pretty well documented that 5 Seconds of Summer are angels in punk rock disguises, right?
Well, after a short break from their Rock Out With Your Socks Out tour, the boys were back on the road – and shared what they’d been up to during their time off.

As they were busy slaying their latest concert, Michael Clifford decided to share with fans at the show that he had been seeing a therapist.
He told the crowd: “I was fixing some problems with my mental health… I just saw a therapist real quick on the break we had".
While it was only a quick statement, Mikey confiding in his fans with this info is pretty magical, especially when talking about mental illness STILL feels taboo in 2015.
And because they’re lovely humans, 5SOS fans soon got #WeLoveYouMichael trending worldwide once they heard the news, and these are just a few of our favourite posts:
