Deepika Padukone emphasises ‘Depression is an illness,’ Feels overwhelmed to see people discuss mental health

Sushant Singh Rajput”s suicide has kickstarted a conversation about mental health once again. While everyone is still mourning the loss of the exemplary actor and human being that he was, prayers and condolences continue to come in. However, something else that has also taken centre stage is talking about mental health and depression, since the actor was undergoing treatment for the same, as has been suggested by the reports. The actor’s last rites took place earlier in the day today.

Deepika Padukone, who has battled depression herself, has spoken about mental health on multiple occasions and today, she shared a post where she wrote, “Repeat after me: Depression is an ‘illness.'” The actress also shared another tweet where she wrote, “It is extremely heartening to see soo many of you coming out and sharing your experience with mental illness.” She also wrote in a different tweet, “However, I would recommend not naming the medication you are on and/or the specifics of the dosage. Simply because: -it is not a one rule fits all. – the information could potentially be misused.”
