Coping Skill – Inspirational Celebrities

The best way to predict the future is to invent it

-Alan Kay


Inspirational individuals demonstrate that mental health struggles do not have to define a person and that they can still achieve great things despite their challenges. They also help to break down stigma and encourage others to seek help and support for their own mental health concerns.


I have distinguished role models and celebrities as they can be inspirational for different reasons, substance and period of time. Take your pick to reflect and aspire to be the same. Some people are great, some have greatness thrust upon them!

Emma Stone revealed on a late night talk show about her anxiety issues and how she had treatment for it as a child. To this day she suffers from anxiety but no longer the debilitating panic attacks that often come with the affliction.
