Bollywood ‘Dimpled Beauty’ Deepika Padukone will start a foundation to promote mental health care on March 21.

The foundation will be named as “The Live Love Laugh Foundation”. March 21 was finalised as this was the day that she decided to seek professional help last year.

The ‘Happy New Year’ actress, who herself suffered from depression for a brief period last year, came out and spoke about it, for which she received a lot of support. It was then, that she realised that mental health issues are quite common but barely anything is being done to prevent these issues. And since she herself suffered, she wants to work towards improving the mental health scenario in our country.

    I thought it was great when she spoke publicly about her depression. I also think its great that she's starting a foundation. I suffered terribly with anxiety and depression since my early teens and I lost my best years to the illness. I finally got control of my issues last year. A great review of what I used can be found here
