Many Americans love their Hollywood celebrities and music icons. They flock out to see their favorite celebrities’ movies as soon as they are released to the big screen, and they run out to get the latest album of a favorite recording artists as soon as it is released. As much as we love our celebrities, it is unfortunate but true that most American’s are not surprised when their favorite celebrities have a complete breakdown. While some blame a meltdown on the intense pressure of celebrities constantly being in the spotlight and under media scrutiny, the fact is that some celebrities’ breakdowns are attributed to mental disorders.

It is estimated that over 54 million Americans suffer from either a minor or serious mental condition. This may include depression, bipolar disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder or something else entirely. Celebrities may be famous, but they are not immune to these issues. Other Americans can live through their mental episodes in privacy, but celebrities’ breakdowns often make headlines. Consider, for example, the breakdowns of famed celebrities like Lindsey Lohan, Britney Spears and Charlie Sheen in recent years. These and other famous breakdowns are all attributed to mental disorders.
