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

Gwyneth Paltrow is a mother of 2 children. And she reveals that she had a hard time when her son, her second child, was born. She went through postpartum depression, and it was not something she expected. “I thought postpartum depression meant you were sobbing every single day and incapable of looking after a child.”

But it appeared to be the most painfully debilitating period of her life. “I felt like a zombie. I couldn’t access my heart. I couldn’t access my emotions. I couldn’t connect. It was terrible.” She admits that acknowledging the problem was the hardest part, and that was when her recovery started.

In 2017, Ariana Grande gave a concert at the Manchester Arena. At the end of it, an incident took place. This is when Ariana had to cope with symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder.

She notes that she has always had anxiety. “I’ve never really spoken about it because I thought everyone had it, but when I got home from tour it was the most severe I think it’s ever been.”
