Howie Mandel: "We don't take care of our mental health"

Kids in Crisis – Fragile minds - an Outfront investigation into the mental health of our children.

OutFront is looking at disorders that you or someone you know probably have. According to the CDC, the disorder affects about 1 in 10 children.

One person who has struggled with Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or A.D.H.D and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, otherwise known as O.C.D is comedian Howie Mandel.

Mandel is very outspoken about his struggles, which include shaking hands with people. He even joked about it Thursday night on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

    I just watched that Purell saturated handshake between Howie and Jay Leno, at least Leno was accommodating for Howie.
