Back in June, Howie Mandel had spoken about his struggles with OCD and anxiety in an interview with PEOPLE where he started using comedy to push through the toughest moments in his life. He stated that his way of going through life was finding the funny. For, if he wasn’t laughing, he was crying. The voices in his head were as dark as it gets, and when he wasn’t on stage, he was having quite a hard time simply existing.
Howie Mandel then opened up about his struggles with depression and mentioned that his life’s mission was to remove the stigma that was associated with it. He knew what his reality was, and he wanted others to take it as it were instead of trying to find reasons to vilify mental depression.
