Anjali Phougat Gives Her 2 Cents on Raising Awareness for Mental Health
Celebrities & Mental Health
Mental health is a very significant talking point for many years. But there are many people who are not ready to express their thoughts and emotions like fear, judgment, and misunderstanding. The good thing is some celebrities like Deepika Padukone, Shah Rukh Khan, Karan Johar, Anushka Sharma, and Yo Yo Honey Singh are. Additionally, they are social influencers, and openly speak about facing mental health issues. Recently, we just had world mental health day so we like to highlightwhat fashion designer and humanitarian Anjali Phougat has to say.
“When influential celebrities talk about mental health awareness people listen to them. My fashion line ‘Designer Dream Collection’ conducted several successful chat shows that hosted celebrities like Madhoo Shah, Sheeba, Shweta Kawatra etc. They spoke very well and were quite vocal about mental health issues. I felt great to host such shows and have such conversations that provide deep insight to my audience. Anyone can watch these episodes on my YouTube channel ‘DesignerDreamCollection’,” she says.
Being an Introvert doesn’t mean one is not vocal about social causes
“I am an introvert, don’t have many friends, and do not talk if it’s not necessary. I am very focused on my work right now and use my energy in the right direction. Introvert does not mean one is not vocal about social causes. I have always been very vocal about raising awareness about social taboos and stigmas through my work and helped the community to raise funds for various things through my fashion house Designer Dream Collection,” adds Anjali.
“I do yoga, go for long walks, spend quality time with family, enjoy my work, help others in need and focus on working on cause-based issues. All these give me mental peace.”
