“I felt very alone and weird. It wasn’t til I got older that I realized that I was one of many, and there were so many people that had overcome what I was going through.”

Brittany Snow had depression, anxiety, and an eating disorder.

An actress and singer, Snow began her career on the CBS series Guiding Light and then played the protagonist Meg Pryor on the NBC series American Dreams (2002) for which she was nominated for a Young Artist Award and three Teen Choice Awards. Snow’s notable film roles include Kate Spencer in John Tucker Must Die (2006) and Chloe Beale in Pitch Perfect (2012). Snow has spoken openly about her battles with eating disorders and co-created the Love is Louder Movement with The JED Foundation to support anyone feeling mistreated, hopeless, or alone. Thousands of individuals, campuses, and communities have used Love is Louder’s programs, events and clubs to address issues such as bullying, body image, discrimination, and depression.
