Celebrities Who Struggle with Mental Health Disorders

Red carpets, luxurious parties, and hefty bank accounts.

While it may seem like all glitz and glam, the lives of celebrities aren’t as perfect as they may seem. Under the spotlight there’s the added pressure to be perfect and the judgmental eyes of everyone who is watching. This pressure can take its toll. Just like your average Joe, there are many celebrities with mental illness.

Celebrities Struggling with Mental Health Disorders

If you struggle with mental illness it is important to get proper mental health treatment. At Banyan Mental Health, we understand that you may feel embarrassed, but you do not need to be ashamed; there are plenty of celebrities with mental illness who are speaking out.

Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey may be blessed with an amazing voice, but she is not untouchable. In 2001, she was diagnosed with bipolar II disorder after experiencing a mental and physical breakdown. She has since discussed her struggles with this mental health disorder, seeking treatment, and her hopes of removing the stigma often associated with mental illness.

Pete Wentz

The Fall Out Boy bassist was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and struggled for many years with the disorder. He has discussed in interviews about how he has come to manage this disorder, not with medication but indulging in other bipolar disorder treatment options like therapies and mindfulness.

Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande has struggled with anxiety her entire life, but she didn’t speak up about it until the bombing at her Manchester concert when her anxiety was exacerbated. Since that time, she has been open about her problems with PTSD and anxiety following the tragedy.

Sarah Hyland

This Modern Family star has struggled with serious depression, including thoughts of suicide, after multiple health issues such as the necessity of two kidney transplants. On The Ellen Show, she revealed this struggle along with a plea for others experiencing this same feeling to get help. If you or a loved one are experiencing suicidal thoughts, it is imperative to immediately get professional help such as a mental health PHP.

Justin Bieber

One of many celebrities with anxiety and depression, this popstar has opened up briefly about his struggles. US Weekly says he copes the best he can, meeting with therapists and doctors.
