We all need somebody to lean on—and for these celebs, that somebody could be their therapists.

As Mental Health Awareness Week comes to an end, we want to remind you that there is no shame in asking for help. Whether it's talking to your friends and family or going to a professional, your mind is important and needs to be cared for like any other part of your body.

Even as mental health issues become increasingly common and public, stigma around topics like anxiety, depression and therapy remains.

This past year, only 43% of adults with mental illnesses received treatment. That's why celebrities who know what it's like to struggle with their mental health have spoken out about the importance of asking for help.

In being open and honest about their experiences, stars like Lili Reinhart have shown fans that therapy is nothing to be ashamed of—in fact, it's just another step in "the journey of self-love."

Others, like Demi Lovato, have gone even further and organized inspirational talks, group therapy sessions and wellness workshops for those who attended her Tell Me You Love Me and Future Now tours.

Whether you've continuously struggled with a mental illness or simply need a little extra support, the help of a professional could be life-changing.
