Amanda Seyfried Opens Up
This week, a great new interview with Amanda Seyfried came out. In it, she talks about her eyes, her dog… and her mental illness. Amanda talks about how she’s struggled with OCD since she was a teen, and takes a medication for it. She speaks candidly about how stigma surrounding mental illness needs to come to an end.
Way to go, Amanda! One of the major misconceptions out there is that people with mental illness can’t work, function, or be successful, and she blows that all right out of the water with her example. Hopefully, she will encourage others to take pride in themselves and seek the help that they need.
Rachel began her mindyourmind placement as Marketing and Innovation Assistant this September, and could not be more excited! As a Psychology and Business student at the University of Waterloo, she is a proud mental health advocate, and passionate about helping connect mental health resources with those who need them. In her spare time, she enjoys writing, baking and going outdoors.
