With over a third of British employees admitting to dealing with anxiety and depression at work, it’s more important than ever that people with a public platform are talking about mental health to continue to fight the stigma surrounding it.

Oscar Award-winning actress, Emma Stone, is the latest celebrity to discuss her own life-long struggle with anxiety and panic attacks.

Showing the talk show host a drawing she had created during a therapy session at the age of 9, Emma said: ‘This is me, I guess. It’s really great artistry with my shoes and then this is anxiety here.

‘It’s a little green monster that looks a little bit like, as someone backstage said, a uterus with some ovaries.’

The La La Land star also revealed that she had ‘immobilising’ panic attacks as young as 7 years old. READ THE FULL POST AT MARIE CLAIRE. Also of interest: Hillary Clinton Tells Anderson Cooper How She Coped With Stress of Losing
