like how it is romanticized either the author claims that Hollywood has this obsession with turning mental illness into something artistic because of this people believe that only real artists suffer

About the author


  1. It was said that Princess Diana and Marylin Monroe were just as; if not, more messed up than Bella Thorne.

  2. Y does everyone hate Bella Thorne? She is just a really hurt person. She deserves love for her mental battles. She could die tomorrow of an overdose; she needs help. Shame on you guys for thinking differently!

  3. “Correction “4 out of 10 is suffering depression in USA .and 6 out of 10 suffered sexual abuse .

  4. The narration on this video proves someone did zero research. One does not simply have a rough patch with mental illnesses. They are life long challenges. And anyone who screws with someone with OCD is a total scum of a person. Geeesh.

  5. I’m 13 and have schizophrenia and have struggled with mental illness since I was 2 years old it doesn’t help I have ptsd

  6. This is the most offensive thing I've ever seen. You don't need to point out mental health. Are you mentally ill? Wow just wow.??????. People with mental illnesses don't need you to point out there personal business. People with ADHD,Anxiety,Depression,Eating disorders and other mental illnesses don't need to be treated differently from other people. There is no reason for this video. Are you just trying to offend people. There is nothing special or wrong with it . This is the worst video ever . People without it don't get it. I hate this video so much.

  7. what kind of medication does kendall jenner take to keep her anxiety at bay typically anxiety meds are a terrible trap such as benzodiazepines xanax they cause more harm then good physical dependency and there pure evil when trying to withdrawal from them

  8. If anyone has a minute after this video I would really really appreciate it if you would watch the video I made titled "I need your help" which is about raising awareness for mental health and it's for my mom! It would mean a lot to me! ??❤️??

  9. I a, tired of the trolls who have no compassion. They just hate people with money and seem to have everything. But, these are hard working people. Demi, Selena, Brittany, etc. etc.–the Disney kids–have been working since they were children. People tend to forget this–as if they suddenly appeared and made it big. They work hard. With that, comes exhaustion, cameras in their faces, the need to keep getting better and better. So when you say everything has been given to them and they are brats for doing drugs and over-dosing–think again.

  10. Trichotillomania actually is related to OCD quite a lot. Trich and dermatillomania and others are known as Body Focused Repetitive Behaviours (BFRBs) and fall under the wider OCD umbrella of disorders. It's more like, BFRBs are when the focuses of the compulsions are on your own body, and OCD doesn't necessarily make that specificity. I'm not actually that educated on it though (as in: like all info someone says online please fact check before relaying it to someone else), I just have dermatillomania and know others who deal with it as well.

    Also, ADHD is not a mental illness. It's definitely a disorder obviously, don't get me wrong. But it's not a sickness, it's more of a neurotype or a condition. A disability and a thing in your brain, but illness is not how it is categorized. Like the issues with it are not within the condition itself, it's more the surrounding world and not being able to process it in the same way as folks without it.

  11. So this means i have a mental disorder because when it is back to school I always buy bags because I'm ocd that it is going to heavy

  12. Yeah I agree, eating disorders are pretty much an addiction. Personally I struggle with bulimia and it's like I'm addicted to binge then purge afterwards or else I'd feel anxious

  13. Why will it be a big deal to see David Beckham on the mental health illness list?
    He is a human being and most of the human beings are suffering from Mental health issues because mental health is still a taboo.

  14. As a person suffering from HFD (High Functioning Depression) I relate to the ones suffering from depression.

  15. I’m depressed, suicidal, I self harm, I wouldn’t say I’m anorexic but I starve myself, I have anxiety, and I’m pretty sure I’m schizophrenic ( I haven’t been diagnosed with any of these but I’m prettyyyyy sure I am).
