I love to see celebrities using their fame for good things. These stars have spoken out about dealing with depression.
1. Kristen Bell
I love this woman. She was amazing in the classic show, Veronica Mars. She played a high school student who moonlights as a budding detective with an awesome dose of sarcasm. She spoke out about taking medicine for depression and anxiety.
2. Angelina Jolie
Yes, the beautiful actress struggled with depression. She suffered a bad depressive state after her mother died, so she jumped at the chance to do the action-thriller "Wanted." She said:
"My mother had just passed away, and I wanted to do something physical to get it out of my head for a while,"
3. Catherine Zeta-Jones
Technically, she was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder Type II, but she particularly struggles with the depressive side of the disease. She said:
"I'm lucky ... but that's not to say I don't get down on myself ... I don't just bring myself down, I bring everyone around me down. It's like a dark cloud, 'Uh-oh, here we go,' and I have to snap out of it."
4. Abraham Lincoln
The amazing former president struggled with bouts of depression in his life. He suffered from stress and feelings of inadequacy during his life.
