1. Selena Gomez
In 2016, pop star Selena Gomez took a career break because of panic attacks, depression, and anxiety connected to her lupus, according to People. Then in October 2018, People reported that she sought treatment for her mental health after suffering a panic attack while in the hospital for a low white blood cell count — a complication that’s often associated with kidney transplant and lupus patients (Gomez had received a kidney transplant in the summer of 2017 from her best friend, Francia Raisa). The singer is currently undergoing dialectical behavior therapy (DBT).
Earlier in 2018, she spoke to Harper’s Bazaar about her mental health and why she’s taking her time creating new music. “I’ve had a lot of issues with depression and anxiety, and I’ve been very vocal about it, but it’s not something I feel I’ll ever overcome,” she said. “I want to make sure I’m healthy. If that’s good, everything else will fall into place.”
