Gone are the days when it was not customary to talk about mental health problems. Now even stars who seem to have everything are becoming patients in psychiatric clinics! However, not all celebrities are content with the popularity, wealth and love of their fans. Some continue to mope, while others are addicted to illegal substances, but they all have one thing in common - a ticket to the "durka". WMJ.ru tells which celebrity has already visited such a medical institution.
The American singer looks happy and radiant only in photos on social networks, in fact, Selena often has nervous breakdowns. In October last year, the singer could not calmly accept the fact that her former lover Justin Bieber was getting married, and was also worried about the decrease in the number of leukocytes in the blood - the artist monitors her health after a kidney transplant in 2017. Stress provoked depression, and Selena was urgently admitted to a psychiatric clinic, where she underwent dialectical behavioral therapy for a whole month.
Britney Spears is a regular psychiatric patient. She first appeared there after a scandalous breakup with her husband Kevin Federline. Britney went crazy in front of millions of fans: she shaved her head, threw herself on people, became addicted to drugs and in 2007 was declared insane. She was deprived of her parental rights and placed in a clinic in Los Angeles. It seemed that this terrible period was left behind. Britney regained her parental rights and found the love of her life in the person of a young fitness instructor Sam Asgari, but no, recently, the artist again began to have problems with mental balance. As they wrote in the foreign press, Britney broke down when her 66-year-old father was taken to intensive care. The man was on the verge of life and death, which could not but bother his daughter.

In August 2018, foreign media trumpeted that Angelina Jolie was urgently hospitalized in a psychiatric clinic. The complicated divorce proceedings with Brad Pitt caused the actress to have bulimia and anorexia. Already slender Jolie was trying to lose, as it seemed to her, excess weight.

The rapper first entered the hospital in 2016. The police even had to handcuff him to transport him to the Ronald Reagan Medical Center at the University of California. As foreign media wrote, Kanye's nervous breakdown was provoked not only by the robbery of Kim and the anniversary of his mother's death, but also by the wrong dosage of medications. According to insiders, Kanye was overly addicted to antidepressants, which he mixed with alcohol and drugs.

Cruz defended his views until his wife Katie Holmes left him in 2012. The actor was so worried about the divorce that he even believed in psychiatry and voluntarily went to the hospital. Experts helped Cruz survive the divorce, but they did not manage to get him out of the Scientology sect.
