Today is World Mental Health Day and that's just fantastic.
It's a subject often considered taboo that just isn't spoken about enough.
So it's time to raise awareness for mental health issues! Let's challenge outdated views and end discrimination!
Sue Baker, who works for Time to Change, a UK based mental health anti-stigma program, said:

We're really bummed to hear about this, as Psy really does seem like a light-hearted, genuine guy. International fame explosions, though, can be very hard on whoever is at the receiving end of all the attention. How would YOU handle having to be everywhere at once with the flip of a switch??
Psy has admitted to having a drinking problem, one that sees him partaking whether he's happy OR sad. It's vicious cycle, and here's what he had to say about it:

That's right, mother****ers! Samuel L. Jackson has had ENOUGH of men not speaking out about health issues, so he's going to change it!
Specifically, he's the new face of the One For The Boys drive, which urges men to visit their doctor on a more regular basis — leading to earlier cancer diagnosis rates! Sam has always been about charity, and now he's knee-deep!

Maybe we should say that Sharon Osbourne went to the dermatologist, because she didn't actually hit them! Ha!
We hope everything is fine and dandy for her, and maybe this is just some sort of follow up or routine check up!
If there IS something wrong, we hope it's just from the stress going on with Ozzy and her marriage — you know, something that isn't permanent condition or threatening at all!
We love you Sharon! Stay healthy!!

Here's a step in the right direction!
Maryland lawmakers just approved the use of medical marijuana! Governor Martin O'Malley has already said he would sign the measure and make Maryland the 20th state to legalize for medical reasons — and we're glad, because it truly is a benefit to some people with some very SERIOUS health problems!
If you can't legally use it recreationally, then at least if you have a legit reason you need it, you can still get it!
The vote passed 42-4, and smoke could be seen billowing out of the courtroom immediately after!

Living strawberry-filled hard candy from your grandmother's sweets jar, Zooey Deschanel, has been spotted with some irregularities on her beautiful eyes!
We have no idea what those bumps are!
Assuming she's trying some new makeup, maybe it's a reaction or something?

We really do hope that the stigma behind going to a therapist will disappear someday, because it's something that is extremely beneficial — and nobody should ever be embarrassed by it!
Seriously. You go to a doctor for any old thing, but when it comes to your mental health, that's when it's frowned upon?? Give us a break! That's why we're really glad to hear that Elijah Wood saw someone for the issues he was having!
We're not happy about the issues, just that he wasn't 'too proud' to seek help!
Apparently it all stemmed from
