In a time where mental illness is more prevalent than ever, breaking the stigma around issues like depression, anxiety, and various disorders can be a matter of life and death.
Our society worships celebrities, and it puts them in a position of immense influence, along with pressure to maintain an image. Kendall Jenner is one star who literally grew up on TV and has been in the public eye since she was a child. In Vogue's digital series, 'Open-Minded: Unpacking Anxiety,' Jenner shared that she has suffered from anxiety and hypochondria for years. She acknowledged that she's privileged, but said that she's still a human being with feelings and emotions, and they're not always good. Jenner recalls having panic attacks that made her feel like her heart was failing and she was going to die. She also says she's experiencing some anxiety at the return to normal life as the pandemic is fading.
