They think that talking about depression is a way to seek attention. Mental health is not covered in medical insurance as well. There was some weeks in my life when I used to wake up and feel like sh*t. It even scared me to think if I have depression because I had no one to talk to. Thankfully, there are therapists and healers. But Indians still lack sensitivity towards this.”
