While talking to reporters, Deepika said, “I think the conversation has opened up (on mental health). I don’t think there’s as much stigma as there used to be four years ago. But we certainly have a long way to go in terms of creating more awareness. I think that’s where we need to keep the conversation alive.”
From opening about her struggles to now, the actress describes her journey as “incredible.”
“It’s been an incredible journey since we developed our foundation. .. it’s been 4 years now and today we launch our first lecture series and I think we have come a long way and in all certainty we have a long way to go. But I think as far as the conversation around mental health is concerned I think we have come a long way,” she said.
Deepika added: “I think media has had a huge role in that in opening up the conversation in various ways whether its interviews, write-ups and articles… but we certainly have a long way to go and that’s why we have the lecture series today.”
Further talking about her latest initiative of commencing a “lecture series” on mental health, the actress said, “The lecture series is to invite people from different profession from various parts of the world. Most importantly the people who are passionate about mental health and have us to talk about their journey and experience.”
