The Science Behind Celebrity Breakdowns

Every year, dozens of celebrities experience mental breakdowns. It’s often possible to read about these breakdowns in various gossip magazines and other entertainment newspapers that line grocery store checkouts. While a celebrity may live a privileged lifestyle, he or she can suffer the same types of mental illness as a normal person. In addition, celebrities are often under a high level of stress at all times. Many may feel that it’s impossible to have a private life after they became popular.

A mental breakdown can be caused by stress, anxiety, environmental factors or hereditary factors. For celebrities, the constant stress of a busy lifestyle can lead to drug and alcohol abuse. Over time, these can increase the risk of a mental breakdown.

Some celebrities can benefit from their breakdowns. For example, Charlie Sheen has earned millions of dollars in publishing deals after his most recent breakdown last year.
