Keeping Howie in our thoughts and prayers.

Howie Mandel, known for his cheerfulness, opened up about his mental health battles on “The Kelly Clarkson Show.” Contrary to his public image, Mandel confessed to often feeling lonely and down when alone. Fame’s pressures took a toll, leading to heavy medication.

Mandel, 65, faced anxiety and OCD since childhood, embracing his “strange” label as part of his persona. He described life as an uphill struggle, even with a supportive family. His experience felt like a nightmare, marked by severe sadness.

COVID-19 worsened his mental state, amplifying death fears despite his family’s safety. Mandel initially hid his conditions, revealing them in 2006. Comedy became his coping mechanism, but he realized complete withdrawal wasn’t healthy.

Mandel aims to destigmatize mental health by discussing his battles. He acknowledges the public may not grasp his struggle’s severity, understanding that his contradictions, like handshaking while needing handwashing, perplex. Amid the struggle, he values moments without darkness.
