As a way to remind people that they are not alone in the fight, Good Housekeeping came up with a list of all the stars who have spoken out so far.

For Gwyneth Paltrow, her bout of depression came when she welcomed her son, Moses, in 2006 as the actress claimed that she couldn't connect with him.

Top on the list would be the singer-songwriter, Demi Lovato, who has been a longtime advocate for mental health as she often talked about her struggles with depression, bipolar disorder, and substance abuse.

The pop star revealed that she has seen "some dark times, especially with the depressive phase of the illness. Bipolar depression really got my life off track."

Another star who has openly talked about his struggles is actor, Jim Carrey, who admitted that he sought the help of psychiatrist during his depression phase.

Actress and model, Cara Delevingne, also made it known that she had to take a break from school to receive treatment when she struggled with depression as a teenager.

Even singer, Katy Perry, admitted in 2018 that she went through "bouts of situational depression" as the singer rarely got the validity she thought she deserved from members of the public.

It would seem that entertainers aren't the only ones who have had to deal with depression as Good Housekeeping recalled a 2017 Telegraph interview that saw Prince Harry confessing that he experienced "complete chaos" two decades after his mother, Prince Diana's death.

For Gwyneth Paltrow, her bout of depression came when she welcomed her son, Moses, in 2006 as the actress claimed that she couldn't connect with him as she did when she welcomed her daughter, Apple, two years earlier.

This journey to openly addressing this difficult topic wouldn't have started if not for people like Winona Ryder, whom Today claims raised eyebrows in the 1990s when she talked openly about struggling with depression at the peak of her Hollywood career.

Winona's struggles have made it possible for the above-listed stars and Catherine Zeta-Jones whose ordeal with the bipolar disorder started around the same time that her husband, Michael Douglas, went through a highly publicized battle with stage IV throat cancer.

That battle had been followed by the actress having to endure a court fight with her husband's first wife over proceeds from the "Wall Street" movie sequel.
