But over the course of the past year, it's often seemed that Paris has turned a corner with regard to her mental health.

Which is why fans have demonstrated cautious optimism in response to the news that Paris has once again checked into a rehab facility.

“After a busy year of work engagements that took her all over the globe, Paris decided that she needed to take some time off to reboot, realign and prioritize her physical and emotional health,” a source close to Paris tells People magazine.

“She checked herself into a treatment facility to aid in her wellness plan and is looking forward to coming out of this revitalized and ready to tackle the exciting new projects that await her."

It sounds as though Paris has simply checked in as a precautionary measure in order to help herself maintain her current level of mental health in the face of a recent increase in stress and pressure.

In the past, Paris has been surprisingly forthcoming when discussing her mental health issues, which has led many to believe that there's no reason to question the latest statement from her rep.

In 2017, Paris covered Rolling Stone and spoke with the magazine for what's regarded by some as the most straightforward interview that any member of her famous family has ever given.

“I was crazy. I was actually crazy. I was going through a lot of, like teen angst. And I was also dealing with my depression and my anxiety without any help,” Jackson told the magazine.

Paris was also about the 2013 incident in which she took 20 Motrin tablets and slashed her wrists.

“It was just self-hatred,” she said.

“Low self-esteem, thinking that I couldn’t do anything right, not thinking I was worthy of living anymore.”

Paris has described the incident as a turning point that led her to realize the importance of mental health maintenance.

We wish her all the best in her continued efforts.
