Bollywood star Deepika Padukone will soon be opening up about the importance of mental health, and dealing with the stress, anxiety and depression during the pandemic, through a virtual session, reported Hindustan Times. 

"The Covid-19 pandemic has caused much turmoil; social isolation, uncertainty about the future and coping with academic pressures, to name a few. And a global crisis such as this often leads to or aggravates pre-existing mental illness," said Deepika, who will participate in a live MasterTalk Session for an online tutoring platform on July 12.

Through this LIVE session, I look forward to sharing with all of you, some of the things I have learnt during the course of my personal and professional journey," she added.

The discussion will cover Deepika's experiences of her school years, her journey with mental illness, the work is undertaken by her non-profit organisation The Live Love Laugh Foundation, and the advice she follows to manage her own mental health.

The Padmaavat star has always been a firm advocate for mental health and anyone who has been struggling with depression.
