Top-billed Australian DJ and producer, Alison Wonderland, real name Alexandra Sholler, spoke with Viceland in a new, in-depth interview regarding her personal battle with depression and the journey to finding her ‘Happy Place’ along the way.

“It was very tough time,” Alison Wonderland explained in the video to interview host Patrick Abboud regarding her internal struggles,

“Like I couldn’t remember what was good about me. I couldn’t remember why anyone would even like me. I couldn’t even remember why I was even here and at my lowest point I tried to kill myself. I was completely disintegrating. It was a very tough time. I wasn’t eating. I wasn’t talking to anyone. It was literally destroying me.”
