Celebrities suffering from MH Issues
WeRfundamentals are celebrating Mental Health Awareness Month! We’ve created a contemporary and excitingly diverse platform for young people to share their stories, successfully lead five outreach sessions and are looking forward to the next ones this October!
In the meantime, we would like to remind everyone that it is normal to be aware of your mental health. It is okay to feel vulnerable, imperfect or a bit of a hot mess sometimes. Everybody has mental health. If you’re reading this and can relate, you’re not alone. In fact, you’re one out of the millions of people who identify as suffering from mental health issues each year - 16 million, to be precise, in the UK alone.
Mental Health doesn’t discriminate - anyone can be affected by it.
WeRfundamentals would like to present you celebrities, which are coping with mental health issues. By this, we would want to prove that MH issues are not an obstacle to reach your achievements and fulfill your dreams.

Because someone didn’t love me didn’t mean I was unlovable. That’s what the break-up of my marriage reduced me to. It took away my self-esteem. It beat me down to the lowest of lows.”
