Depression is a horrible illness. Not only is it one of the hardest things to get through, but it feels like it will never end, and there is always someone who believes it canโ€™t really be that bad.

These celebrities have found that light, and hopefully will give you hope...

Bev, famous for her role in Coronation Street, had a break down last year, and has suffered with depression ever since. She took a five month break from acting to recover, and even tried electro-convulsive therapy in the hope that it would help. Sheโ€™s now taking life a little slower, and writing a book on her experiences with different treatments. She once explained depression in an interview, saying โ€œDepression is not a sign of weakness. People who are finishers get it. We start something, work flat out and sometimes your body just stops.โ€ I love this view.
