World Mental Health Day was on the 10th October, and Karan Johar posted a long note on his mental health issues.

He honestly stated, “Like many others I felt like “this cannot happen to me….” We read about mental health and hear about it with compassion but somehow you never feel like it will come out knocking on your door…but it can and it did…in 2015-2016, I felt the first burst of anxiety and knew within that something was wrong…my friends guided me to a psychologist and after a series of conversations I knew what I was dealing with and addressed it medically and with a change of lifestyle..things got better and I weaned off meds. This year in March I knew the trigger, it returned and I knew I had to address it immediately…

For someone who does battle anxiety or depression “simple solutions like”..go for a drive!! Meet friends! Go for a holiday..get a massage…these are red flag conversations to have and you must be educated enough in this zone to even offer advice…

To family members my advice is simply to make sure that the person going through it seeks professional help…we tend to address blood pressure, diabetes etc with so much ease then why neglect mental health..more power to those brave ones who acknowledge the issue and address it head on… but to millions who don’t ..just know thar there is a better life awaiting you..all you need to do is reach out.”

Thankyou Karan Johar for sharing!
