Stephen Fry

television presenter and actor

It can be hard to find the courage to speak out on mental illness, particularly when it affects you personally. Stephen Fry has spoken publicly over many years about his experience with bipolar disorder.  He is involved with the mental health charity Stand to Reason and is president of Mind. In an interview with Richard Herring earlier this year, Stephen revealed that he had attempted suicide the previous year while filming abroad. His candidness and conviction when explaining his emotions has not only raised positive awareness of mental illness, but he has undoubtedly given strength to so many millions of others. Whilst we feel we know this remarkable man so well from his many character portrayals, it is through voicing his own life in such an honest and open manner that he is continuing to inspire us.
