Celebreties who suffered from depression
It was reported in The New Paper today that comedian Jim Carrey used to go through bouts of depression.

Another celebrity who suffered from depression during her teenage years is Singaporean singer Sun Ho, according to the Straits Times today. It was further revealed that she was sexually abused at the age of six by someone known to her. She said she had since forgiven the man.

    Celebrities often get extra limelight when it comes to news. In actual fact, it seems pretty common for normal people like us to sink into depression at some point of our lives.

    I do feel it is good that celebrities are coming out to be open and talk about their mental breakdowns. This encourages our society, especially the local context, in lowering social stigmas over mental illnesses.

    We need more celebrities to endorse that it isn't a disgrace or anything shy about these anymore. Let's all be open about it!
