Jim Carrey Has a Powerful Message For Those Suffering From Depression

Mental illness is an area of health that is largely misunderstood and wrongly stigmatized. Having had several loved ones who personally suffered from different mental illnesses, such as schizophrenia, depression, anxiety disorder and even PTSD, I can say that treatment options for people experiencing these conditions often revolve around taking pharmaceuticals that do nothing to treat the actual problem.

Instead, these pills work as pacifiers, shutting down and inhibiting certain parts of the brain to the point where, sure, you’re no longer experiencing your symptoms, because you’re not really feeling anything at all.

Ask anyone suffering from a mental illness and they’ll tell you that they wish there were a better way to help treat them--one that didn’t rely so heavily on pills and medications.

That’s where beloved actor Jim Carrey comes in to share a powerful message with us. He suffered from depression for many years and was finally able to overcome it after ditching any and all substances and replacing them with a healthy dose of spirituality.


“I’m a Buddhist, I’m a Christian, I’m a Muslim… I am whatever you want me to be. It all comes down to whether you are in a loving place or an unloving place. When you are with me, you can’t help but be happy,” says Carrey after being asked about his religious views.

Carrey describes a life in which he no longer uses drugs like Prozac as a means to make others feel comfortable around him.

“I’m very serious about no alcohol, no drugs. I just… Life is too beautiful.”

And when asked if he’s worried about all of the people who will label him as crazy for being so spiritual, he has just one thing to say:

“I just want to be myself. If I lose a few fringe people who can’t deal with the fact that there are other forces in the world, that’s okay with me.”

  1. The answer is for people to calm down as we only have so much energy and getting exhausted is what leads to depression and burnout. Happiness is within not always people pleasing to be liked.
