#NotAshamed: Deepika Padukone Urges People To Share Depression Stories
Says depression is like any other illness that requires intervention
The actress has in fact urged other people to speak up about mental illness and share their stories.
“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.
