Kristen Bell Talks About Her Battle With Depression

“It gave me a complete and utter sense of isolation and loneliness.”

In a recent essay on Motto, Kristen Bell opens up about her struggles with depression during the first 15 years of her career. Normally a positive and bubbly person, Bell reveals that she had to learn to stop regarding herself with a negative attitude and in place, a permanent sense of sense overcame her. Thankfully, the House of Lies actress had the support of her mother, whose openness about the subject (predominately viewed as a taboo) encouraged her to seek the help and medical attention she needed.

By penning her experience, she hopes to help others who are also struggling with depression and to educate the public that people with depression should not be judged for their vulnerability. She claims, “There is such an extreme stigma about mental health issues, and I can’t make heads or tails of why it exists. Anxiety and depression are impervious to accolades or achievements. Anyone can be affected, despite their level of success or their place on the food chain. In fact, there is a good chance you know someone who is struggling with it since nearly 20% of American adults face some form of mental illness in their lifetime. So why aren’t we talking about it?” Read an excerpt of her essay below or read the full feature on Motto.
