Apart from research and outreach programmes,The Youth Anxiety Center has conducted more than 75,000 treatment sessions in six years…something to be very proud of! Thank You #AnnaWintour for inviting me as your guest to this very special evening and allowing me to share my story. I wish you all the very best and look forward to supporting the centres future initiatives. As the African proverb goes, “If you want to go fast go alone, if you want to go far, go together”. @tlllfoundation #youthanxietycentre @voguemagazine
Padukone opened up in 2015 that she struggled during the shooting of Happy New Year and was later diagnosed with anxiety and depression.
Speaking of her own experience with depression at the event, she said “That was the hardest part to put on a front every single day like everything is okay in your life when actually that’s far from reality. You’re smiling and bringing joy into other people’s lives when you have none.”
Through her NGO, The Live Love Laugh Foundation founded in 2015, the actress aims to reduce the stigma around mental health and spread awareness.
On the work front, the starlet recently wrapped up Chhapaak and have already started working on her new film ’83 alongside her husband Ranveer Singh.
