Kristen Bell Mental Health Advice For Kids

Kristen Bell Shares Powerful Video About Anxiety and Depression: "Everyone's Human"

Kristen Bell opened up about the realities of anxiety and depression in a candid video shared on Tuesday. The mom and actress is working with the Child Mild Institute for a campaign called "my younger self," which asks people what they would tell their younger self about their mental health or learning disorders. Kristen revealed that she's been "struggling with depression and/or anxiety" since she was 18 and wants everyone — including children — to know it's OK to feel that way and that they're never alone.

"Don't be fooled by this game of perfection that humans play," she said in a supportive tone. "Instagram and magazines and TV shows strive for a certain aesthetic, and everything looks so beautiful. People seem like they don't have any problems, but everyone's human. Everyone has problems — everyone feels yucky on the inside sometimes." Truth.

One of the most most powerful parts of her statement was her encouragement for kids to not feel ashamed to ask for help, no matter their age. "Never feel embarrassed or ashamed about who you are," she said. Her sentiment was followed by an adorable little boy who also shared a resource for other struggling kids. Consider this yet another reason we love the relatable Kristen Bell, who always keeps it real. Watch the full video above, and embrace her helpful words.
