Mariel Hemingway: We All Come From Something

Posted: Updated:
"What this film is about is to bring light to this subject so other people know that they're not alone."

Mariel Hemingway and her family are featured in a new documentary called "Running From Crazy". Her grandfather Ernest Hemingway took his own life months before Mariel was born. It chronicles the story of Mariel and her sisters...and their struggles with the family history of substance abuse, mental illness and suicide. There have been seven suicides in Mariel's family, including her grandfather and sister Margaux. Hemingway told Steve and Lisa depression and suicide are things that are more common in the world than you'd think...but nobody ever really talks about it.

"The truth is we all come from something and to be able to share this story with many people if a celebrity can share and be personal and open about it. then that gives other people permission to say 'Oh I don't have to keep this in the darkness."

Mariel also discussed how she's being upfront with her family about the Hemingway history and letting them know things don't have to end bad.

"This is in our family but that doesn't mean that's a sentence, it means you are mindful and aware."

"Running From History" premieres on OWN Sunday night.
