Deepika Padukone writes letter on her battle with depression: You’re not alone, help’s always available

Deepika Padukone has always been open about her battle with depression and encouraged people to talk about their mental health issues.

The actress has now written an open letter, addressing her struggle with depression for Elle India’s 22nd anniversary edition. The letter was written just days before her marriage to actor Ranveer Singh.

In the letter, Padukone speaks about her initial struggles when she was diagnosed with anxiety and clinical depression, her foundation Live, Love, Laugh, and the importance of having each other’s backs in times of loneliness and darkness.

The letter was shared by the magazine on its Instagram handle.
