'My mental health is great': 'SNL' star Bowen Yang says he feels better after suffering from 'depersonalization'

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: There's good news for Bowen Yang's fans. The ‘Saturday Night Live’ star has given a health update after taking a break from his podcast. “My mental health is great,” the comedian told PageSix during the 2023 American Museum of Natural History Gala Thursday night, November 30.

“It’s very good. I had a really rough patch and people were very patient with me. It’s hard but you know, I barreled through. I powered through,” he added. The ‘Fire Island’ star publicly opened up about his break over “bad bouts of depersonalization.”

What is depersonalization?

As per Mayo Clinic, “Depersonalization/derealization disorder occurs when you always or often feel that you're seeing yourself from outside your body or you sense that things around you are not real — or both. Feelings of depersonalization and derealization can be very disturbing. You may feel like you're living in a dream.”
