Her foundation’s website is a platform to express, share and champion mental health concerns especially targeted for the Indian audience.

The Indian government estimates that 6-7% of the population which is approximately 70 million Indians live with some sort of mental health issues.

What’s worse is that stigma and discrimination faced by these people and their families prevent them from seeking guidance.

Deepika Padukone, who was diagnosed with depression during the peak of her career, hopes to change this.
