Mental health has become an important topic and people should start talking about it more so that it’s no longer considered a taboo. Many influential people have come forward to share their story to normalize talking about mental issues. Now, we have Amitabh Bachchan’s granddaughter Navya Naveli Nanda coming forward to talk about anxiety and how she’s taking therapy to cope with it.
In a conversation with the other co-founders of her organisation Aara Health, Navya said that earlier she didn’t feel comfortable talking about going to therapy. “It was something new for me as well. I wanted to kind of experience it myself before talking about it. Obviously, my family knows that I am in therapy but I don’t think any of my friends do. I don’t know if I would still go and tell them,” she said.
Seeing her speaking about the issue, Navya’s mother Shweta Bachchan commented ‘Bravo’ on the video. “I went fairly recently like you said that you realise when you hit rock bottom. I feel like I hit rock bottom multiple times and I just couldn’t figure out why. I was like okay, obviously, something has to change, I need to talk about it. I think it helped coming to that conclusion. Now once a week I am in that routine and I don’t think I am even close to hitting rock bottom because I have everything in control, I am talking to someone. Now I can identify what are the things that even get me to hit rock bottom. People realise too late sometimes that they need to get help,” she added.
