10 Celebrities Who Were Brave Enough to Open Up About Their Mental Health Struggles

In one of her interviews, Kesha talks about how she was raised by a mother who was oblivious to social norms. The singer also speaks up about the bullying in her childhood and teen years for having things that made her unique and how this impacts her life today, she says, “I know from personal experience how comments can mess up somebody’s self-confidence and sense of self-worth. I have felt so unlovable after reading the cruel words written by strangers who don’t know a thing about me.

To cope with her problem, Kesha had to change her relationship with social media. “I love it because it’s how I communicate with my fans — and nothing means more to me than my fans — but too much of it can exacerbate my anxiety and depression.”

5. Ryan Tedder

In 2017, Ryan Tedder, OneRepublic’s lead singer, made an honest post on Facebook. He wanted to explain to his fans why there was a long break in work for their group. “I (Ryan) hit a physical, emotional, and psychological wall. I was on the verge of a nervous breakdown, not sleeping, on meds, not happy, anxiety at a crippling level, and it was triggered from sheer exhaustion.”

Ryan wanted to stop, saying, “I called my manager and said, pull the plug.” But, fortunately for fans this decision was not made. In the same post, the singer wrote “We are going to,” signifying the fact that they were not going to give up, and would continue giving concerts.
