Justin Chambers ‘addressing mental health issues’ amid leaving Grey’s Anatomy

Justin Chambers has reportedly been addressing some mental health issues at a facility in Connecticut.

The actor, 49, announced he was leaving the cast of Grey's Anatomy after 15 years on Friday.

Now it's claimed he has checked into Privé-Swiss – a facility that provides luxury, private mental health treatment – to help deal with "stress" and to seek "life-coaching", Page Six reports.

A source told the outlet: “Justin has been at [Privé-Swiss] for stress and life coaching. He has been seen in the area at different places over several weeks including at a restaurant at Old Saybrook — where he was nice and chatted to other diners, but looked very thin.”

"For some time now, however, I have hoped to diversify my acting roles and career choices.

"And, as I turn 50 and am blessed with my remarkable, supportive wife and five wonderful children, now is that time.”
