Seyfried oversees her OCD with the use of an antidepressant called Lexapro. “I’ll never get off of it,” she confessed. “I’ve been on it since I was 19, so 11 years. I’m on the lowest dose. I don’t see the point of getting off of it. ”

In Seyfried’s perspective, the smoke and confusion around the concept of mental illness are the reason why many people don’t ask for help—and she’s ready for that to end.

“And what are you fighting against? Just the stigma of using a tool?” Seyfried said. “A mental illness is a thing that people cast in a different category [from other illnesses], but I don’t think it is. It should be taken as seriously as anything else. You don’t see the mental illness: It’s not a mass; it’s not a cyst. But it’s there. Why do you need to prove it? If you can treat it, you treat it.”
