Kristen Bell is also one celeb who has had to fight depression.

In an interview on YouTube’s Off-Camera Show, Bell revealed that she has long taken medication for her depression and anxiety. But you won’t detect any shame in her confession. Bell’s mother and grandmother both experienced the same serotonin imbalance, so the actress learned early on that there is no shame in seeking help and taking medication. In Bell’s wise words, “You would never deny a diabetic his insulin, but for some reason when someone needs a serotonin inhibitor, they’re immediately ‘crazy’ or something.”
