The Bajirao Mastani actress has dedicated this year to helping out people with mental health issues!
Deepika Padukone has decided to support those suffering from anxiety, panic attacks and depression a part of an initiative.
The actress feels close to the cause as she herself suffered with a bout of depression last year. Despite the back to back hits, for a brief period early on in 2014, Deepika was battling depression.
The actress feels that mental health issues are common in today's society but required attention is not being paid in order to prevent the same. So DP has been taking time out from her busy shooting schedules for the last three months to work for the benefit of mental health patients
Deepika has also appointed a team of doctors and psychiatrists who will help her combat the issues of mental health in the country.
Announcing her dedication to the cause DP tweeted,“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.”
In another tweet she said, "Anxiety,Depression and Panic Attacks are not signs of weakness.They are signs of trying to remain strong for way too long."
It is heart-warming to see the actress stand up for such an important cause. More power to you, Deepika!
