Deepika Padukone has emerged victorious from depression. The actress has set up a foundation wherein people can seek help for mental health. As the untimely demise of Hollywood celebs Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade has shattered the world, Deepika chose to post a message to create awareness about the importance of mental health.

She posted on her official Instagram handle, "Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain were pioneers in their respective fields. They both carved a niche for themselves by doing the unexpected. They not only changed the world of fashion and food forever but were also loved by millions across the world. To the outside world, they seemed ‘happy'. They seemingly "had it all". Then how did they ‘fall' into depression?"

Adding further, she wrote, "We don't ask why someone who "had it all" was detected with a fatal illness, why someone who "had it all' broke their foot or why someone who "had it all" met with an accident. Just like all other illnesses, depression does not discriminate. The element of depression that is grossly misunderstood is the belief that you have control over your illness. In reality, you don't. The illness will creep into your life, and if left untreated, may completely engulf you. You are not in the driver's seat anymore, the illness is. It will tell you where to go, what to eat and when to sleep."

Well, the message itself represents Deepika's unwavering support for the importance of mental health and her concern for those who are under the clutches of depression.
