Pink says she and husband Carey Hart have been in couples counseling for nearly 17 years

Pink is getting real about her mental health.

During an interview with Carson Daly on the Today show, the 39-year-old singer shared the secret behind her longtime relationship with husband Carey Hart.

"Carey and I have been in couple's counseling almost our entire 17 years we've been together. It's the only reason we're still together," she said, before revealing why therapy is so helpful to them.

"... He speaks Polish, I speak Italian and she [our therapist] speaks both. We do not speak the same language," she explained. "...We come from broken families and we had no model of how are we supposed to keep this family together and live this crazy life? And there's no model. There's no book that says, 'Here's how to do this.' So we go to counseling and it works."

The "Try" singer also discussed mental health as a whole as well as the need for it to be talked about out in the open.

"I think I'm hopeful that the taboo of it is going away because more and more people are talking about it," she said. "I think talking about it is the most important thing."

"I know anxiety is like the number one thing that kids now are going through," continued Pink, who is mother to 7-year-old Willow and 2-year-old Jameson. "Like for us, for my generation, I feel like it was depression and suicide. And suicide is super prevalent still, but now it's like it comes from a place of anxiety. And I get that. I fully understand that."

Pink fully understands those issues because she's dealt with depression, anxiety and has a tendency to "overthink everything."

"But what I do is I keep the right people around me and I go to therapy," she said of her process.

ET caught up with Pink following her Walk of Fame ceremony back in February and she gushed about Hart, calling him her "muse."

"[Carey] is totally my muse. We have been together for 17 years and it is work but it's worth it," she said, before revealing how he showed her love ahead of the special ceremony.

"He got me flowers yesterday which never happens, so that's what made today sort of set in... that this is a big deal," she said. "It was sweet."

It's been a big year for Pink and her family. In addition to her star on the Walk of Fame, her appearance on Today is in honor of her new album, Hurts 2B Human.
