Jyotika Kapoor, Chaiperson, FICCI Flo, Bengaluru and Shoma Chaudhury, host of ENQUIRY present a crucial conversation with mental health activist & billionaire philanthropist —NEERJA BIRLA.
It could be you. It could be me. It could be a billionaire, a superstar, a daily wage worker.
Or a child in the family.
Depression & mental ill-health is among us. Mostly unrecognised. Unaddressed.
One out of every 4 teenagers in India, one out of almost every 2 professionals in the corporate sector, and many millions of unmapped people are struggling with it at this moment.
In this candid and compelling interview, NEERJA BIRLA talks of her daughter & her own encounter with depression; her work in raising awareness, what signs to look for. And how India can cope with its depression epidemic.
She recently set up a helpline & received 60,000 calls for help in 7 months. That’s just the tip of the of the iceberg
