7 Celebrities with a Disorder ...

Mental disorders have a large stigma in America, but by having celebs with a disorder who open up about their struggle, it has become more acceptable.

When celebs with a disorder explain their situation to the public, they have become role models to others struggling with the same disorder.

Here are some famous celebs that have a disorder and have opened up doors to others suffering from the same situations.

1. Michael Phelps

Not many people are aware, but one of the most famous celebs with a disorder is Michael Phelps.

This Olympic medalist has been battling Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) since he was 9 years old.

ADHD is a disorder that gives people a lot of energy and makes it hard for them to focus on tasks at hand.

By having an outlet — swimming — that allowed him to focus, Phelps battled this disorder to become one of the most successful Olympians ever.
