You are not alone
It’s 100% okay to talk about mental health.
In light of this, we’ve rounded up a few celebs who have spoken out on mental health and all things associated with it, in the hope that it shows that it’s okay to talk.
Okay so you probably knew this was coming.. Demi has never made a secret of her struggle with Bipolar Disorder. She’s been the face of countless mental health awareness and support campaigns and is a continuing voice in the celeb world that won’t stop fighting for it to be okay to talk about mental health. Girl, keep doin’ you.
..because mental health ain’t got a female-bias. Dream boy Zayn has opened up about his struggles with an Eating Disorder whilst he was part of 1D. It’s super important for boys to talk about mental health especially so Zayn, we salute you. Also, can we get yo’ digits?
Mega cutie Ellie recently opened up about her anxiety and proneness to panic attacks. Yep, even the chart topping, cool AF, uber talented songstress doubts herself sometimes.
Yep, that’s right. Jade from Little Mix has been very vocal about her eating disorder in the hopes that it will help some of her fans who may be going through something similar RN. She has attributed her recovery to having an amazing support network, so shoutout to Little Mix for once again providin’ us with alll the girl gang goals.
We’ve loved her since the Hannah Montana days, and our fave triple threat Miley has always been open and honest about every aspect of her life. Mental health has been no exception. Miley has often discussed her battle with Body Dysmorphia which came as a result of the constant pressure of being in the spotlight. We love her just the way she is.
