Supportiv, a support network that matches users with peers for anonymous, real-time chats on any mental wellness topic – from everyday life struggles, anxiety, stress and relationship or work conflicts to grief and loneliness – has launched the world’s largest collection of celebrity mental health stories at on their website.

“We typically see only bits and pieces of celebrities’ lives, the moments when they are the most polished, or the most charismatic,” says Supportiv Co-Founder Helena Plater-Zyberk. “There is a public presumption of invincibility which overshadows reality. It’s human to struggle, or to feel lonely or anxious. We applaud those who have revealed their raw moments.”
