Taking cues from her own experience, actor Deepika Padukone emphasised that people suffering from depression cannot ‘snap out’ of the mental health condition.
Continuing with her daily practice of posting mental health messages for people struggling with depression and other issues, Padukone posted the recent message on social media.
“Repeat after me: You cannot ‘snap out’ of depression,” Padukone wrote on Twitter.
The actress has started with the series of mental health quotes after the sudden demise of actor Sushant Singh Rajput, who committed suicide by reportedly hanging himself at his Bandra residence in Mumbai.
The ‘Tamasha’ actor started voicing her opinion on the importance of mental health through her foundation ‘The Live Love Laugh Foundation’ (TLLLF) in June 2015. Through the platform, the actor keeps launching nationwide awareness as well as destigmatisation campaigns.
A day earlier, she urged people not to treat depresssion the same as sadness.
The ‘Chhapaak’ actor put out a post on Twitter emphasising the importance of mental health and urged everyone to not think of depression in the same way of feeling sad. She shared a picture that read, “Repeat After Me. Depression is not the same as sadness.”
Meanwhile, scores of comments followed on her latest post on mental health, where netizens too shared their take on mental health.
