In a country where depression is not even considered a disease, the actress openly spoke about overcoming depression in an interview in 2015. With an attempt to create awareness on mental health in India, the actress even formed a foundation called The Live Love Laugh Foundation. The actress’ foundation has even teamed with Facebook and Mumbai based mental health NGO, AASRA to reach out and to help people with suicidal tendencies. Her foundation had even started a campaign titled #DobaraPoocho to help people suffering from depression.
Previously, talking about depression in one of her blog for Hindustan Times, the actress had written, ” Please don’t hide it, feel angry, think of yourself as weak, or consider it a character flaw. It is not your fault if you are depressed. Acceptance is the first step on the Road to recovery.”
We are glad that an actress of her stature has come forward to not only create awareness, but also help the people suffering from depression.
