WATCH | When celebrities check themselves into rehab for mental health issues, fans should do what they can to help the stars (or anyone in that condition) recover.
WATCH | According to Us Weekly, Selena Gomez recently checked into a Tennessee treatment center to address her mental health.
The news came just weeks after she'd revealed to People magazine her anxiety, panic attacks and depression.
And Kid Cudi announced this month he'd entered rehab for "depression and suicidal urges."
WATCH | While these revelations are sobering, we should be encouraged by celebrities' candor and willingness to get help, and other stars like Clark Gregg, who are stepping up to raise awareness about mental health. As fans and human beings, here are three ways we can help from afar.
1. Don't shame celebrities coping with mental health issues on social media (or otherwise).
2. Educate yourself about the effects of anxiety and depression. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, 20 percent of teens and adults experience a mental health problem, and 90 percent of Americans who commit suicide had an underlying mental illness.
3. Remember that while stars have fame and fortune, they're human. Tweet them some love!
