David Harbour Opens Up About Bipolar Disorder, Reveals He Was Once Committed to a Mental Asylum

  David Harbour Opens Up About Bipolar Disorder, Reveals He Was Once Committed to a Mental Asylum Stranger Things star David Harbour recently received the Best Supporting Actor Critics' Choice Award David Harbour is getting candid about his experience with mental illness. During a lengthy interview with Marc Maron for the comedian’s WTF podcast, the Stranger Thingsstar opened up about dealing with anxiety, self-hatred, mania, fear and sobriety — and revealed he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder at 25 after being committed to an asylum. Harbour, 43, said his mental health was actually tied to his early preoccupation with spirituality. “Here’s the interesting thing, which I’ve actually never truly spoken about publicly,” he said. “I actually was in this Catholicism thing … and I was sober for like a year and a half, I was 25, and I actually did have a manic episode and I was diagnosed as bipolar.” “I really had like, a bit of a break where I thought I was in connection to some sort of God that I wasn’t really in connection to,” he continued. “It was like I had all the answers suddenly.” Want to keep up on the latest from PEOPLE?

So I actually was, by my parents, taken into a mental asylum.
