“A crisis, as insidious and devastating as mental health crisis demands our undivided attention. It’s quite clear that it is more up to the fortunate ones to make ourselves available to those who seek help. So, be that someone who can listen to your woes, look out for the symptoms of illness and sufferings and help somebody and spread the word about mental health and build awareness,” added the cine icon, who has joined hands with Neerja Birla for the nationwide mental health campaign #SunoDekhoKaho.
