When celebrities 'come out' about their bi polar disorders chances are it wasn't by choice. Typically there's a very very public breakdown that goes viral. Carrier Fisher would be a recent example. People did a bit on her recent episode on a cruise ship. Culturally, consumers will eat up anything that is even mildly controversial, or that displays the demise of a once beloved celebrity. I'd love to see these individuals get help before it goes public. Public breakdowns sensationalize a real problem. It's not that the public can't handle the grisly reality some face, but it pushes those who struggle further to the margins.
