Psychologist Who Evaluated Amber Heard Says Actress Shows Signs of Personality Disorders
Although Johnny Depp has finished testifying in the case against his ex-wife, actress Amber Heard, the case is far from over. Depp is attempting to clear his name, claiming that he has never physically harmed any person except himself. He says that he never physically harmed Heard. Instead, he claims she was the one who physically harmed him.
Depp’s legal team hired a clinical and forensic psychologist to evaluate Heard’s mental health. Now, nine days into the trial, we finally know what the results were of that evaluation.
The psychologist, Dr. Shannon Curry, testified that Depp’s legal team hired her in 2021 to “provide a psychological evaluation of Ms. Heard.” While she evaluated Heard, she was never asked to evaluate Depp.
While Curry can’t comment on the state of Depp’s mental health, she did explain the results her evaluation of Heard. As part of her evaluation, Curry reviewed medical records as well as “all the case documents.” In addition, she considered statements from witnesses and reviewed audio and video recordings as well as pictures. Curry also met with Heard on two separate occasions in December 2021.
Curry told the court, “The results of Ms. Heard’s evaluation supported two diagnoses: borderline personality disorder and histrionic personality disorder.”

According to Mayo Clinic borderline personality disorder is “a mental health disorder that impacts the way you think and feel about yourself and others, causing problems functioning in everyday life. It includes self-image issues, difficulty managing emotions and behavior, and a pattern of unstable relationships.” In addition, “With borderline personality disorder, you have an intense fear of abandonment or instability, and you may have difficulty tolerating being alone. Yet inappropriate anger, impulsiveness and frequent mood swings may push others away, even though you want to have loving and lasting relationships.”
Do you think Depp would be diagnosed with any mental health disorders if he were evaluated? Do you think he should be evaluated by a psychologist?
