Demi Lovato, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Jon Hamm, Carrie Fisher, and Ashley Judd are among the many celebrities who've admitted to struggling with depression, anxiety, or bipolar disorder
After the 2003 birth of her daughter Rowan, the actress suffered a serious bout of postpartum depression for which she was later medicated. In her darkest moments, she considered suicide. "[I believed] I should not exist. The baby would be better off without me. Life was never going to get better — so I better just go," she said while accepting an advocacy award from the Hope for Depression Research Foundation. "Finally I did fight. I survived."
