The actress also credited her mother Ujjala Padukone her identifying her signs and symptoms.she said that if her mother and her caregiver had not identified her symptoms, in her moment of vulnerability, had she not had the presence of mind to tell her to or help her to reach out to the professionals, she wouldn't know what state she would be in today.
Ensuring, I was regular with my treatment, with my consultations with the doctors, and of course, it takes a toll on the caregiver as well and that's not something new.
I think caregivers in general, whether it is mental illness or any other form of illness, it takes a toll on the caregiver," Deepika said.
Deepika Padukone does not need any introduction. She has always been vocal about her struggle with mental health and she also runs the Live Love Laugh Foundation, which aims to help those struggling with their mental health.
In 2015, Deepika came out about her mental illness and revealed that she battled depression a year before that and sought help.
