F#*K SHAME AND STIGMA –
Aug. 12, 2022 – Kaley Cuoco shared her struggles in the past with her mental health, particularly during her 2021 split from partner Karl Cook, which left her “struggling” with depression. Pink has opened up about her mental health journey, speaking to Carson Daly on Today. The US singer said she’s struggled with anxiety and depression and is an advocate for therapy, sharing that she and husband Carey Hart “have been in couples counselling almost our entire 17 years that we’ve been together.” Sarah Michelle Gellar is the latest celebrity to open up about her battle with mental illness. The star took to Instagram to share the postpartum depression diagnosis she received after the birth of her first child, Charlotte, now seven years old. Charlotte now has a little brother, Rocky, aged four.
Amanda Seyfried recently revealed she is pregnant with her first child with her fiancé, Thomas Sadoski. Opening up to W magazine, the first-time mum revealed her battle with OCD and how she’s glad the stigma around mental health is shifting. “I’m on Lexapro, and I’ll never get off of it. I’ve been on it since I was 19, so 11 years. I’m on the lowest dose. I don’t see the point of getting off of it. Whether it’s placebo or not, I don’t want to risk it. And what are you fighting against? Just the stigma of using a tool?
Harry Styles revealed that the struggle to write his latest album inspired him to try out therapy for the first time. “I think for a really long time, especially when I started coming to California, there was a big thing for me where I felt like everyone went to therapy,” Styles said. “And I think for a long time I was like, ‘I don’t need that.’”
