Mental Health is a sensitive and very important topic. But it has always been considered to be a taboo and not a lot people talk about it, and from the few who do, they are either not taken seriously or they are even at times made fun of. A lot of people keep their mental sufferings to them. But with passing time people are coming out and are trying to talk about it. Celebrities are one of them. A lot of big names are spreading awareness and are trying to just hammer all the stereotypes around it.
Among all these celebrities, Shruti Hassan is one big name. Shruti in an interview with Hindustan Times, opened up her torment experience and how she is dealing with it.
Being at home during a global pandemic and stuck in lockdown is an unnatural situation. It affects people in a variety of ways and one of them is their mental health. I definitely think the mental health crisis is a very real problem. But people are usually cautious or are ashamed to talk about it,” said Shruti. She further added “I am in therapy for three years now. I seriously recommend therapy for people, who need it. I have tools and meditation that help me.”
Shruti further revealed how her quarantine time is passing, “The toughest thing in a lockdown is not having physical contact with people as I am completely alone in my flat. But I have been quite busy during the lockdown. I have been shooting for magazine covers, making music long distance, writing a lot of music and writing in general. This time has been very productive for me.”. The ‘Welcome Back’ actor is spending her time with her cat in her apartment. She keeps posting her videos of singing time and again which is loved by her fans
