She has since returned to the platform and opened up about her mental health to her subscribers.
In a recent video, Cooney spoke to YouTuber and therapist Kati Morton about what it was like to be put on a 5150 — a 72-hour psychiatric hold — by her friends.
She said she felt ambushed because she was starting to think about entering a program herself. Instead, she was sent to a psychiatric hospital against her will, and entered an unnerving and scary environment.
Morton helped explain what a 5150 actually means, and how for some people it can do more harm than good.
