There are the blues and then there’s depression. Feeling down in the dumps is one thing, but when it impacts every aspect of one’s life and there doesn’t seem to be a light at the end of the tunnel, well, that’s a whole other beast. Depression is a serious disorder and an ever-growing epidemic; at this moment, some three million Canadians are suffering from depression. It can happen to anyone, anywhere – even those who seem to have it all. Yes, celebs get depressed, too. Every one of these 14 stars has battled with mental illness, and not one dealt with it in the same way. Not only are you not alone, but you’re in good company.

It’s time we started talking openly about our mental health. Join the conversation on Bell Let’s Talk Day, January 25, and help end the stigma around mental illness. For every text message sent and mobile or long-distance call made by Bell Canada and Bell Aliant customers, Bell will donate five cents to Canadian mental health programs. The same goes for anyone sending a tweet using #BellLetsTalk, posting on Instagram using #BellLetsTalk, watching the Bell Let’s Talk video on Facebook, or sending a Snapchat using the Bell Let’s Talk geofilter. But talking about it is just the first step: Visit letstalk.bell.ca for more ways you can effect change and build awareness around mental health.
