Amanda Seyfried Underwent Therapy For Anxiety


It’s incredibly difficult to ask for help (for yourself or your child), especially because of the stigma attached to therapy.

The more openly we talk about our experiences with therapy, the less power the stigma has over us.

Amanda Seyfried (of Mean Girls and Mamma Mia! fame) has undergone Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for her anxiety disorder. Of CBT, she says, “that’s been such a great tool, and my therapist told me that I passed with flying colors, but we’ll see how things go”.

It’s great when celebrities’ mental health is in the spotlight, because talking about mental illness is the only way to squash the stigma.
