The Wanted's Max George Reflects on His Battle With Depression Amid His Rise to Fame

During his appearance on Good Morning Britain, Max said, “One morning, I was just at my dad’s house and I woke up and I was like, ‘I feel all right today.’ And then I’ve been fine, like, absolutely fine about it.”

The podcast was the first time Max had spoken publicly about his battle with depression. “Even talking about it now, I’m not going to lie, like, it makes me feel a little bit uncomfortable and nervous because it’s just not something that I thought I’d do,” he admitted. “But I will say, in terms of me talking, it does help me and it has since day one. But the biggest thing for me about talking about it, was the response that I got from other people….For me feeling a bit uncomfortable about it, it’s worth it.”

And he’s continuing to talk about it. “That’s the thing, I think with having a mental illness…it is so normal and so many people have it,” he said, “and you don’t need to feel isolated with it.”
