Amanda Seyfried who is known for her roles, in hit film like Mean Girls, Ted 2, Dear John, In Time, and Mamma Mia! is speaking out about mental health and how it should taken seriously.

“A mental illness is a thing that people cast in a different category (from other illnesses), but I don’t think it is,” Seyfried said while talking with Allure. “It should be taken as seriously as anything else. You don’t see the mental illness: It’s not a mass; it’s not a cyst. But it’s there. Why do you need to prove it? If you can treat it, you treat it.”

Seyfried went on to speak about her obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), including going to therapy and taking a low dosage of Lexapro since she was 19 to help manage the condition.
