Just this week another celebrity came forward. Yo Yo Honey Singh opened up to Times of India about his battle with bipolar disorder and alcoholism. He also admitted the last 18 months were the 'darkest phase' phase of his life but is doing better now and under the care of a doctor's supervision.

Mental disorders are extremely common but still considered to be taboo in our society. However, thanks to these brave celebrity faces who are putting a spotlight on mental disorders, it is comforting to know that you are not alone. It is important that mental health problems be treated the same as any physical health problems, therefore seeking proper treatment for the patient.
