In the modern era, we’ve made significant progress regarding mental health and people's struggles. For the first time in our history, there are honest, painful conversations about mental health taking place daily. From the ordinary person to a celebrity, everyone is being honest about what it is, and more importantly, what they are dealing with.
Celebrities are uniquely positioned to inspire others to be open about any mental health issues they may be encountering. Their stories are proof that anyone can be affected by mental health, even those people who seemingly have it all; fame, money, and access to whatever resources they need. Here are some famous faces who have been honest about their struggles:
While Harry might be making waves among the British press and public for his highly publicised departure from his royal background and his recent Netflix series and book release, his story is undercut by severe mental health struggles.
The loss of his mother, Diana, was a devastating life-changing event for the young prince, as it would be for anyone living with that kind of trauma. Harry’s recollection of turning to drink and drugs as a way of dealing with his grief in his teens and beyond may seem laughable to more vocal critics.
On the surface, Anthony Mackie, who starred in the highly successful Captain America movie, would appear to have everything he could want to those who don’t know what’s going on behind closed doors. However, Mackie has recently opened up about mental health issues.
The father of four admits to a need to be physically active to keep his mental health in check and cheerfully admits to needing to “build anything”. It’s a stark admission from a man who is poised to be one of the next leaders of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and a reminder nobody is exempt from taking time to care for their state of mind.
Global superstar, Katy Perry would seem to have it all; a musical career that will go down in history as being long and iconic, and a strong relationship with British actor, Orlando Bloom. However, she too has battled mental health issues, citing that transcendental meditation has helped her significantly with facing her career challenges. It just goes to show that even celebrities need coping tools just like anyone else!
