“Dear White People’s” Logan Brown Reveals She Suffers From Depression
Despite its prevalence, there is still a stigma around suffering from mental health issues and having the courage to admit it. “Dear White People” actress Logan Browning is the latest public figure to admit to her struggles. She gave her Twitter followers a glimpse of just how daunting it can be to live with depression, while encouraging others to take care of themselves in a now-deleted post. Logan, 29, tweeted:
“It just took me a full 24 hours to get out of bed and stay out. Depression is a reaper. Be well.”
Fellow celebrities – Breakfast Club radio personality Charlamagne Tha God and singer Michelle Williams – have also been open about their experiences with mental health.
Michelle checked herself into a mental health clinic this past summer to treat her depression, and has shared how it’s affected her relationship with fiancé, Pastor Chad Johnson. She said this on her OWN Network reality show, “Chad Loves Michelle:”
“I thought I was over depression. I thought, ‘I’m good!’ I’ve got love, I’m working out. But I was so angry. The rage built up in me. I did not attempt suicide, but I was questioning [life]…I’d been there before in that darkness. I was like ‘No, you better go [to the hospital].’ By the time I got there, I was stable.”
Charlamagne recently released his second New York Times bestselling book about his journey with anxiety – “Shook One: Anxiety Playing Tricks On Me.”
You’re not alone, Logan!
