Former actress Cita Astals recounted her battle against mental disorders called schizophrenia and bipolar.

In an interview with DZMM's Rated Korina on Wednesday morning, Astals shared that it was on April 26, 2009 when she had her first mental breakdown.

Astals said she was hearing more than 30 voices inside her head for almost two years.

After taking medicines for more than six weeks, Astals said she's finally free from hearing voices.
