The Stranger Things actress suffered with anxiety issues, and in 2017, she shared her sufferings in an interview with People. Shannon told,

8. Chrissy Teigen

In 2017, the outspoken and bold Chrissy penned down a heart-touching personal essay for Glamour. Here’s a powerful excerpt that touches upon the ordeal of postpartum depression,

“I had everything I needed to be happy. And yet, for much of the last year, I felt unhappy. What basically everyone around me—but me—knew up until December was this: I have postpartum depression. How can I feel this way when everything is so great? I’ve had a hard time coming to terms with that, and I hesitated to even talk about this, as everything becomes such a ‘thing.’

9. Kerry Washington

Kerry Washington is a powerful advocate for therapy and rehabilitation, and in 2015, she shared her own experiences about therapy in an interview with Glamour. The Scandal actress is reported to have said,

“I say that publicly because I think it’s really important to take the stigma away from mental health. My brain and my heart are really important to me. I don’t know why I wouldn’t seek help to have those things be as healthy as my teeth. I go to the dentist. So why wouldn’t I go to a shrink?”

10. Adele

Adele has always been open about her struggles with depression, and in 2016, she gave a powerful interview to Vanity Fair, saying,

“I’m very available to depression. I can slip in and out of it quite easily. It started when my granddad died, when I was about 10, and while I never had a suicidal thought, I have been in therapy, lots. But, I haven’t had that feeling since I had my son and snapped out of my postpartum depression.”
