MrBeast, the individual creator on YouTube, has ascended to become the most-subscribed figure on the platform, boasting a rapid rise to fame and a staggering number of subscribers that now surpasses hundreds of millions.

Furthermore, he has successfully manages multiple channels, solidifying his status as an influential force in the realm of online content creation.

In order to effectively manage the copious amount of content he produces, Donaldson strategically assembles teams of individuals who collaborate with him in generating ideas, actively participate in his videos, and assume responsibilities in the production and editing process, ensuring the delivery of polished final videos.

However, behind the scenes, the charismatic content creator has been dealing with the weight of immense pressure, leading to what he describes as “mental breakdowns.”

MrBeast Suffers From “Mental Breakdowns”

In a YouTube show hosted by filmmakers Colin Rosenblum and Samir Chaudry, MrBeast discussed his content creation approach.

MrBeast said: “I don’t have a life. I don’t have a work-life balance. My personality, my soul, and my being are making the best videos possible, entertaining my fans as best as I can. That is why I exist on this planet.”

However, he advised others to not follow the same approach to working as he does. “I’m miserable a lot of times. I have a mental breakdown every other week because I push myself so hard,” he said. 

When questioned about how he recuperates after pushing himself too hard, MrBeast responded by stating that he takes “a few hours off, watching anime” without elaborating on his reference to a “mental breakdown.”


In an era where the pressure to constantly produce viral content and maintain online popularity is at an all-time high, MrBeast’s story serves as a reminder that the pursuit of success should never come at the expense of one’s mental well-being.

His willingness to confront and address his struggles brings forth the importance of destigmatizing conversations surrounding mental health in the online world.

As MrBeast continues his journey of making impactful and awe-inspiring videos, he hopes that his experiences will serve as a beacon of hope for others who may be silently battling their own demons behind the camera.

By starting a dialogue about mental health within the content creation community, he strives to create a more compassionate and understanding environment for creators and viewers alike.
