John Green: Depression, Anxiety, OCD
Best-selling author and video blogger, John Green, has become one of the most prominent advocates for mental illness awareness, sharing his struggles with depression, anxiety and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and how he’s been able to overcome them. He’s taken to social media to bring down the stigmatization of mental illness and medication used to treat it, "Like millions of others, I take medication to help treat my mental illness. Treating chronic medical conditions must not be stigmatized." He credits exercise, meditation, medication and cognitive behavioral therapy strategies with helping him manage his OCD and anxiety.
