MUMBAI: Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone launched a powerful campaign about mental health, illnesses and taboos to spread awareness.
The 34-year-old actor has now launched a powerful campaign called #DobaraPoocho, urging people to pay more attention to their loved ones and ask them about mental health and well-being.
After she was diagnosed with clinical depression in 2015, Deepika launched 'The Live, Love, Laugh Foundation' to help people with mental health issues.
She started conversations around mental health after the suicide of her colleague Sushant Singh Rajput who was believed to be struggling with depression for several months.

While I embarked on this journey more than 5 years ago, recent tragic events have made us all realise that now more than ever, we need to prioritise mental health and intensify our focus on #SuicidePrevention. Thank you @shyambhat72 and Dr. Soumitra Pathare for talking to me and addressing some unanswered questions on Suicide & Why People Do What They Do. Youtube:🔗 in BIO
