For too long, many people — including musicians — have silently battled mental health issues, putting on a happy face for the rest of the world.

But things have been changing. In recent years, many artists from across multiple genres have used their platforms to speak out in the hopes of destigmatizing everything from depression to bipolar disorder and more by opening up about their own struggles and methods for coping.

Adele and Alanis Morissette, for example, have shared their experiences with postpartum depression. Billie Eilish has opened up about how fame led to depression and suicidal ideation, while Bebe Rexha and Halsey have shared their bioplar disorder diagnoses. Guns N’ Roses rocker Duff McKagan, who battles panic disorder, revealed that a new song was written in the midst of a panic attack, while Rick Springfield recalled a past suicide attempt in his memoir.

These are just some of the brave artists who have shared their experiences to encourage the millions of fans who are listening to them. Read on for more musicians who have opened up about their mental health journeys.
