The Shameless star, 56, penned the letter amid ongoing turmoil in her life.
She was arrested for possession of cocaine in 2017, her husband Paul Chase lost his job and the couple lost their home.
The actress also fell out with her eldest daughter Dannielle, 37, and ended up in court for sharing an alleged picture of one of James Bulger’s killers.
But it was the thought of leaving her five-year-old daughter Flame Chase without a mum that pulled her back from the brink.
Tina said: “It’s been the year from hell. I was suffering with severe depression and I was suicidal.
“I’d penned my letters and planned how I’d do it, but the only thing that stopped me was Flame.”
But life is now on the up. She added: “It feels like my life has turned around.
“I’m back in work now on Channel 5 show Clink, Paul is back in full-time work and my relationship with Dannielle is back on track.”
