Cape Town - American rapper Kanye West recently got candid about being hospitalised due to bipolar disorder, but he isn’t the only celebrity who’s opened up about living with a mental disorder.

These A-list celebs have also spoken up in recent years.

1. Kanye West

The singer was diagnosed with bipolar disorder two years ago and recently talked about his personal experiences of living with the mental disorder with the hope of helping others change their perception of it.

2. Taraji P Henson

Not too long ago the Empire actress opened up about living with anxiety and depression. Taraji hoped speaking up would help eliminate the stigma around mental health in the black community.

3. Justin Bieber

The Canadian singer recently put the brakes on his world tour to get help for his mental health issues. This decision came after he penned an emotional post on Instagram revealing why he had no desire to hit the road again.

4. Ariana Grande

During an interview with British Vogue, songbird Ariana Grande said she had post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) following the tragic Manchester bombing where 23 people died and many more were injured when a bomber denoted an explosive at one of her UK gigs. She said the event still affects her.

Last year the Destiny’s Child singer revealed she’d been struggling with depression for years and was finally seeking help from professionals. She added that she’d dedicate herself to increasing awareness of mental health issues to empower others to seek help.
