Sheryl Crow has opened up about her mental health, describing it as "a work of progress at all times" during an interview with Entertainment Tonight.

"I think we've gotten better about talking about our mental health," the 60-year-old singer, who has often spoken about the subject, told the outlet Thursday. "I mean, certainly we've seen... This past year has been an incredible illustration of how fragile our mental health is. And I think we're starting to enter a really healthy place where it's OK to speak about the struggles and the chemical struggles."

"I think the way I am made, is what has propagated my art. It's made me want to be an artist. But at the same time, it's also been something I've struggled with," she added.

"The really high highs, the really low lows. And it's a work in progress at all times, but at least I'm aware of what it means to be in the throes of either one of those, and to figure out how to center myself," she continued.

Talking about needing help for one's mental health is considered okay now, but back then, about a decade or so ago, having a conversation surrounding mental health was a hard thing to do, especially for celebrities like Crow.

"If people talked about mental struggles, then there was something really wrong with you, and you were damaged, you were damaged goods," the "All I Wanna Do" singer said.

Crow then emphasized the importance of openly discussing mental health struggles as they affect all sorts of people. "And I think now we're seeing that, not just famous people and not just people who are achieving, but people all across every walk of life, including our children, struggle. We need to have a dialogue that is constant and empathetic," she explained.

Crow, whose documentary titled "Sheryl" is hitting Showtime Friday, also took a look back at how she struggled with her fame and how ephemeral it seemed. "There was a lot of pressure that went along with being an artist, entering my forties and everybody on the radio being in their teens, this was during the Britney, Christina Aguilera, and there I am turning 40. Then suddenly you're not relevant anymore," she recalled.

Good thing, the documentary presented her with the opportunity to look back on those times and remember them fondly, knowing that "everything has turned out great."

"[It's] really wonderful to be able to look back on those times and experience them from a distance, with the joy that I have now and knowing that everything has turned out great. It would be a different story, obviously, if things weren't the way they are now. But what an incredible time," she shared, noting that "there's no handbook" for fame.

"So there's no way to know how you're going to respond to it," Crow said further.
