Jim Carrey on Overcoming Depression


Jim Carrey was interviewed by CBS in 2004. As the segment looks over the career and individuality of Carrey, it becomes more personal as he begins to speak about his battle with depression. Carrey does not allow his diagnoses to define him and continues to find the joy and beauty in life.


It is important to remember that every diagnosis is on a spectrum in mental health.  We admire Carrey for being vulnerable with the public and for being a leader in terms of self-awareness and honesty.  He worked back off of antidepressants when he was ready, but not until then. 👏 👏 👏
