Fame and fortune bring both good and bad elements along with them. Many celebrities brought light to mental health issues in an attempt to raise awareness and reach out to wider audience. These are just some of the more popular celebrity quotes who wanted to let people know that they’re not alone in their struggles.

Depression and Fear

Commonly referred to as Queen B, Beyonce is one of the best-selling music artists of all time. With more than $400 million net worth, 3 children, and an equally popular husband, Beyonce seemingly has a perfect dream life.

However, in a 2006 interview, she made her struggles with depression public after her girl group disbanded and she spiraled into a shy and vulnerable period; “Because of my newfound fame, I didn’t know if I could ever find someone that would appreciate me for who I am. I was constantly depressed and didn’t want to go anywhere.” With the help of her mom, she managed to overcome this problem: “Why wouldn’t someone love you?”, my mom said. “Don’t you know how smart and beautiful you are?” “That’s when I realized I have two choices; either give up or go on.”

She kept going on, eventually meeting Jay-Z, with whom she is now happily married for more than 10 years. She wanted to let people know that even though it might seem hard, there’s always a reason to keep fighting.

You’re Not Alone

At 6’5 and 260 lbs, it’s hard to imagine a man of his stature facing mental health problems. But Dwayne Johnson, also known as The Rock, revealed how difficult his childhood was along with multiple bouts of depression connected to it. When he was 15, his mother attempted suicide which left him extremely vulnerable. “I reached a point where I had no will to do anything. I was crying constantly.”

For him, the safe haven was a gym. He explains that he battles depression by going out and taking action, doing something that makes him feel good. Through Twitter, he further explained his battles: “We all go through the sludge and depression doesn’t discriminate. I needed a lot of time to realize that the key is not being afraid to speak up, especially with males that are known for keeping problems to themselves. You’re not alone.”

There Is Life

A big mental health advocate, Demi Lovato produced a documentary about her struggles with multiple mental diseases, including bipolar disorder, depression, and addiction. She is fighting against the stigma surrounding mental health problems. “Standing up for ourselves and taking away the stigma is extremely important if we’re dealing with symptoms of a mental health disease.”

She wants to let people know that not everything is as dark as it seems: “I want to show the world that there still is a beautiful, surprising, and enjoyable life – even after diagnosis.”

Mental diseases are a serious problem affecting one in every four people. A very small number of them ever seek help. It’s important to reach out and help anyone suffering from any of these debilitating conditions. Sometimes, all they need is one person to let them know that they’re not alone.
