Ira Khan On Being Clinically Depressed

Aamir Khan’s daughter Ira Khan on World Mental Health day revealed through an Instagram video that she has been “clinically depressed” for more than four years. With her revelation, she intends to start a conversation around mental health.

Khan wrote in her caption, “A lot has been going on, a lot of people have a lot to say. Things are really confusing and stressful and simple and okay but not okay and… life all together. There’s no way to say it all in one go. But I’d like to think I’ve figured some stuff out, or at least figured out how to make it slightly more understandable. About mental health and mental ill-health. So come with me on this journey… in my awkward, quirky, sometimes-baby-voice-y, as-honest-as-I-can-be… way. Let’s start a conversation. Happy World Mental Health Day.”

Ira in the video said, “I’m doing much better now. For over a year now, I wanted to do something for mental health, but I wasn’t sure what to do. So, I have decided to take you on a journey, my journey, and see what happens. Hopefully, we will get to know ourselves slightly better, understand mental illness better.”

Earlier this year, Shaheen Bhatt came out with her maiden book I’ve Never Been (Un)Happier.  The book talks about Shaheen’s struggle with depression. It also talks about how insomnia remains a big problem with her even today, how she continues to take medication, how talk therapy has been the best help for her.

Broken families or not younger people need to talk about mental health issues openly to break the taboo and make such conversations mainstream.

If you think you are experiencing mental health issues  you should seek immediate medical attention from a doctor or other professional healthcare provider.
