Mumbai, Apr 10 (IBNS): From representing the country globally to giving us memorable characters in iconic movies, Deepika Padukone is one of the finest actresses we have in the country today.

Having battled depression at an early stage in her career, the actress started The Live Love Laugh Foundation with the aim to create awareness,de stigmatise depression and encourage those afflicted with mental health issues to seek help.

As a part of this initiative, Deepika’s foundation has joined hands with the government of Karnataka on the occasion of World Health Day. Deepika made a speech before a large audience at the NIMHANS Convention Centre in  Bangalore.

Addressing the people there, Deepika Padukone said, "Depression can strike anyone regardless of their age, background or economic status. Unfortunately those who suffer from depression and other mental health issues face prejudice and discrimination. In 2015 ,The Live Love Laugh Foundation was established to raise awareness and de-stigmatize depression. Recent initiatives by the government show that the authorities are committed to addressing and combatting the imposing challenge that Depression presents. I hope together we create an environment where people afflicted with mental illnesses feel comfortable, safe and loved."
