 Deepika Padukone to Create Mental Health Awareness in India

The bollywood actress Deepika Padukone, in the year 2015, is planning to create as much mental health awareness among people as she can. She is currently working with an experienced group of doctors to help out people who suffer from depression, panic attacks, anxiety etc.

The actress took this step after she realized that issues related to mental health are relatively common but hardly anything is carried out to curb these issues from our society. Further, Ms. Deepika herself had experienced depression for quite sometime in the previous year, in spite of giving back-to-back hits because of which the issue is much personal to the actress. In spite of having a tight schedule for the year, she has been presently working for such a cause in the last three months.


Ms. Deepika has hired a team of psychiatrists and doctors, who will be working for the cause and on improving the present condition related to mental health in India, through out 2015. The panel of experts will work closely with the actress and will focus on common problems such as panic attacks, anxiety, and depression.

Deepika Padukone further commented that, "I am committed to the cause, and we have been working towards this for some time now. I will work on it this whole year."
