Celebs Who Live With Mental Illness

I love when high profile people come out and talk openly about living with a mental illness. Take a look at some famous names who have lived with unipolar, bipolar and postpartum depression.

Remember, depression is a serious, but treatable illness.

I am shocked by how many people suffer from bipolar disorder.

Many, yes! The goal is not to feel shame but to find a way to live with one's chronic illness.

In New Zealand one of our rugby greats has been very active in talking about his depression. I think it has made a huge difference in a country where men don't cry and men are men and are tough particularly on the rugby field

Hey S'onnie,

John Kirwan is in my book. And yes, it is great that he's been open about his struggles.

I really adore Demi Lovato, she's so strong and such an inspiration. I hope I can over-come my diseases one day as well.
