In this artcle, nine celebrities share their stories of how their mental wellbeing has been negatively impacted, many over a period of years.

Whilst I don't follow or take an interest in celeb's lives (they are afterall just 'normal' people going about a different lifestyle to mine), I recognise that many will have followers who can be inspired by how they have sought and accepted support and progressed to enjoy periods of more healthy mental wellbeing.

Courageous sharing such as told in the article can only help to educate all of our population to know that "It's OK to not be OK".
