#NotAshamed: Deepika Padukone urges people to share depression stories

Says depression is like any other illness that requires intervention

Mumbai (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News – 10th October, 2018) Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone is never ashamed of revealing her depression.

The actress has in fact urged other people to speak up about mental illness and share their stories.

In her social media post on Wednesday, the actor shared a video with a strong message.

In her video message, Deepika shared that in 2014, she was diagnosed with clinical depression but in India, 90% people don’t seek help.

“Depression is like any other illness that requires intervention,” she added.

“90% of India’s population is unaware of what they’re experiencing mentally and emotionally. There are others who refuse to seek help due to the stigma attached to mental illnesses.”

“In 2014, I shared my story. Today I urge you to share yours too using the hashtag #NotAshamed” she added.
