Up until her death, Ryan was also co-hosting a podcast, Mentally Ch(ill) where she got deep talking about her own personal struggles with depression.
In her latest podcast, Ryan addresses the recent death of her grandfather stating, “I’m just worried that this is going to send me into a deeper depression,” according to USA TODAY.
Podcast co-host Kristen Carney and famous ex-boyfriend Drake Bell have both taken to Twitter this week expressing their sadness and disbelief over Ryan’s passing.
