Celebrities Who Suffer from Mental Illness

According to statistics from the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill, about 5% of the population will have a mental illness including depression, manic depression, and/or anxiety disorders at some point in their lives, and half of these people will also have a substance abuse problem. Celebrities that are willing to come forward and share their conditions help others by taking away some of the stigma associated with mental illness. If you know of someone who may be battling a mental illness such as depression, psychiatrists can give you information on ways to help.
