After the recent news of an engineering student Arjun Bhardwaj committing suicide, actor Anupam Kher took a great initiative of helping those who are dealing with depression. He began with sharing his email id in a tweet telling people suffering from depression to reach out to him.
Next, after receiving over 300 e-mails from people who wanted to talk their heart out, he is all set to launch a website called Anupamcares.com. This website will be a platform for everyone and anyone battling with depression to reach out for support and guidance.
The actor in his interview to The Hindustan Times said, “For the last four years I am suffering from sleeplessness and my doctor said that I am also depressed for some reason. So personally I have an idea about the medical reasons and symptoms, which is why I can’t just do one or two tweets and move on with life. I am creating this website, Anupamcares.com that will have my email address. The website will be dealing with people in grief, depression, setback and sadness. In a month and a half, it will be ready and I will personally connect to people through the same. I plan to have one or two professional psychiatrists on the website. Many have also written to me that they want to help. I might take them in as well.”
