Kendall Jenner Opens Up About Extremely Scary Panic Attacks -- 'I Couldn't Breathe'

By Mike Walters

Kendall Jenner is trying to help spread the word about anxiety -- and she is opening up about her own struggles to help others deal with their own issues.

The 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star and supermodel joined up with Kenneth Cole to launch the 'Mental Health Coalition' -- an organization designed to gather funding to help people in need of assistance and treatment.

Jenner opened up about her own issues and described just how severe her panic attacks were growing up.

"I was really, really young and I remember feeling like I couldn't breathe and ran into my mom and like, 'Mom I can't breathe. Something must be wrong," she said on 'Good Morning America.'
