On the occasion of World Mental Health Day, Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone took to social media and shared a series of pictures where she was seen doing a range of exercises. She captioned her post as, "Happy World Health Day!🤸🏻♀️, PS: physical & mental"
The 'Padmaavat' actress has often spoken about the phase when she was suffering from depression. In 2015, she had revealed that during the shoot of her film 'Happy New Year', she was struggling to go for work each day. It was after she broke down in front of her mother, did she seek professional help from a doctor suggested by her mother. After talking to the psychologist she found out that she has been suffering from anxiety and depression.
Last year, the actress shared a video of herself speaking about her diagnosis and urging people to come forward with their stories of mental health illness.
The actress said, "In 2014, I was diagnosed with clinical depression. But in India, 90 percent of people who suffer from depression, don't seek help. Depression is like any other illness that requires intervention. So if you are someone who has experienced any form of mental illness, I urge you to share your story by using the #NotAshamed."
