World Mental Health Day – Inspirational Quotes from Celebrities

As it was World Mental Health Day this week, Max Agency has compiled a list of motivational quotes from celebrities who suffer from mental illness.

“The advice I’d give to somebody that’s silently struggling is, you don’t have to live that way. You don’t have to struggle in silence. You can be un-silent. You can live well with a mental health condition, as long as you open up to somebody about it, because it’s really important you share your experience with people so that you can get the help that you need.” (source)

Zayn Malik
BBC

“I now have no problem with anxiety, it was something I was dealing with in the band… People saw strength in that, and they didn’t seem to expect it from a guy, but they expect it from a female, which to me is crazy. We’re all human. People are often afraid to admit difficulties, but I don’t believe that there should be a struggle with anything that’s the truth.”(source)

Halsey

“A lot of people say, if you can’t take the heat, you shouldn’t be a musician. I think that’s messed up. I think I deserve to chase my dream and do what I love even though I have a mental illness… It makes me upset to have people abusing me for A, B, C, or D online. It’s not because I’m oversensitive. It’s not because I take it to heart. It’s not because I’m overdramatic. It’s because I have a mental illness. And the fact that people refuse to be sensitive to that shows me that we still have a very, very, very long way to go. If I miss out on something because I let my mental illness get the best of me, I’m going to be letting down thousands of people who need me to be stronger than that.” (source)

Cara Delevingne
CelebMafia

“Being vulnerable is actually a strength and not a weakness — that’s why more and more mental health is such an important thing to talk about. It’s the same as being physically sick. And when you keep all those things inside, when you bottle them up, it makes you ill.” (source)

Chrissy Teigen
Yahoo News Canada

“It’s such a major part of my life and so, so many other women’s lives,” Teigen wrote about the common condition (PPD). “I’m speaking up now because I want people to know it can happen to anybody and I don’t want people who have it to feel embarrassed or to feel alone.”

Jon Hamm
Variety

“Medical attention is medical attention whether it’s for your elbow or for your teeth or for your brain. We live in a world where to admit anything negative about yourself is seen as a weakness, when it’s actually a strength. It’s not a weak move to say, ‘I need help.’ In the long run, it’s way better, because you have to fix it.” (source)

Hayden Panettiere
Wallpaper Cave

“Women are so resilient and that’s the incredible thing about them … I think I’m a better mom for it because you never take that connection for granted,” the actress said regarding her PPD. “It doesn’t make you a bad person or a bad mother,” she continued. (source)

Camila Cabello
CelebMafia

“OCD is weird. I laugh about it now,” says Cabello. “Everybody has different ways of handling stress. And, for me, if I get really stressed about something, I’ll start to have the same thought over and over again, and no matter how many times I get to the resolution, I feel like something bad is about to happen if I don’t keep thinking about it.. To the point where I’m just like, ‘Aha! OK, this is just my OCD.’ I’ll ask my mom a question for the fourth time and she’ll be like, ‘That’s OCD. You’ve got to let it go.’” (source)

“When I was about 7, I was convinced the house was burning down. I could sense it. Not a hallucination, just a tightening in my chest, feeling I couldn’t breathe, like the world was going to end. There were some flare-ups like that, but my anxiety was constant.” She added: “At a certain point, I couldn’t go to friends’ houses anymore – I could barely get out the door to school. I started acting at this youth theater, doing improv and sketch comedy,” she said. “You have to be present in improv, and that’s the antithesis of anxiety.” (source)

Amanda Seyfried
Page Six

“I had pretty bad health anxiety that came from the OCD and thought I had a tumor in my brain,” Seyfried said, opening up about living with obsessive-compulsive disorder since she was a teenager. “I had an MRI, and the neurologist referred me to a psychiatrist … As I get older, the compulsive thoughts and fears have diminished a lot. Knowing that a lot of my fears are not reality-based really helps. It should be taken as seriously as anything else. You don’t see the mental illness: It’s not a mass; it’s not a cyst. But it’s there.” (source)

Catherine Zeta-Jones
Parade

“This is a disorder that affects millions of people and I am one of them. If my revelation of having bipolar II has encouraged one person to seek help, then it is worth it. There is no need to suffer silently and there is no shame in seeking help.” (source)
