Actor Amitabh Bachchan’s granddaughter Navya Naveli Nanda is working on normalising the conversation around mental health with her organisation Aara Health. On Tuesday, the organisation’s Instagram page shared a video in which Navya talked about her own struggle with anxiety and how she has sought therapy for it.
Mental illness or health has been a matter of concern for a very long time. Unfortunately, very few people used to come out in open to talk about such issues. However, nowadays, it is not the same as people are expressing their concerns, doubts and issues that they are facing on social media or with each other. Well, similarly, a starlet recently opened up about the anxiety issues and how she had to seek therapy for the same.
The starlet in question is none other than Amitabh Bachchan’s granddaughter and Shweta Bachchan’s daughter Navya Naveli Nanda. She started with her own foundation named Aara Health. In a conversation with the other co-founders of the organisation, Navya said that earlier she didn’t feel comfortable talking about going to therapy.
She said, “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.” 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 to come 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.
