8 times Taylor Swift spoke out about mental illness

I’m thankful when celebrities speak out about mental health because there are so many people that suffer in silence; those people need to know that they are not alone.

So don’t fucking bash celebrities when they talk about their mental health problems. Don’t tell me that because people have money or fame or success, they are somehow impervious to mental illness. That’s some ableist crap right there.

They may have priveledges that cushion the blow, they may be able to afford therapy or drugs or to take time off work but that doesn’t mean that they don’t suffer. For instance, if the person at Number One right now got cancer or diabetes and spoke publically about it, would you ask what they were complaining about? Didn’t think so.
