Mental health illness is one of the biggest yet most ignored problem in today's generation. People often take it lightly and end scarring themselves deeply. In a recent media interaction, actress Deepika Padukone who herself suffered from depression back in 2014, shared a heartfelt message for people who find themselves in situation like hers and emphasized on the importance of seeking help.

Deepika said, "For anyone who has ever experienced mental illness, it can be, I am not saying it is, it can be a lonely journey. And that’s when I realized speaking up is how I wanted to take that journey forward. It was my learning, probably my calling, where I felt like by speaking up if I am able to impact one life the purpose would be served."

She further added, "It can be a lonely journey. We are here to say you are not alone, we are here in this together. So, giving hope to every person experiencing stress, anxiety, depression and to let you know you are not alone. And it stems, from one line, when I put my mind to it, I don’t want one life to be lost because of mental illness."
