Actress Deepika Padukone was honoured for her contribution in the field of mental health at the World Economic Forum, organised in Davos. The actress received the Crystal Award as the audience cheered for her.
She said, “In the time it has taken me to accept this award, the world has lost one more person to suicide. One trillion dollars is the estimated impact of depression and mental illness on the world economy.”
