Deepika Padukone Wins Crystal Award For Raising Mental Health Awareness

Actress Deepika Padukone has been honoured by the 26th Annual Crystal Award for raising mental health awareness. She is the only Indian actress to feature in Davos 2020 winners list. Honoured to receive the award, Deepika Padukone said: “With more than 300 million people suffering with the illness, depression is the leading cause of ill health and disability in the world today and a major contributor to the overall global burden of disease. It is therefore increasingly clear that, now more than ever before, we need to aggressively address what is an invisible and overlooked health and social burden,” she was quoted as saying by news agency IANS.
