Male Stars Whose Tragic Deaths Prove Mental Illness Needs To Be Discussed Openly

Mental Illness is the base for mental health disorders that affects your emotions, thoughts, mood communication, knowledge, spirit, behavior, and self-esteem.

Many people don’t talk about their mental illness openly. But it is nothing to be ashamed of. Mental Illness is a medical condition, just like other diseases such as diabetes, which is treatable. It does not discriminate among age, gender, social status, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, background, or other aspects of cultural individuality. And it can occur at any age, as per the research studies three-fourths of all mental illness begins by age 24.

Over the years, men with mental health disorders are less likely to have received mental health treatment than women. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the death rate of men by suicide is more than women.
