New Delhi: LiveLoveLaugh (LLL) has announced the launch of 'Lecture Series Unplugged', a quarterly event designed to build awareness and sustain open conversations about mental health. This series will spotlight figures sharing their lived experience, and their insights on success, failures, triumphs and learnings.

Deepika Padukone, Founder, LiveLoveLaugh said, “Over the last decade, LLL has managed to successfully create a safe space for crucial mental health conversations. With 'Lecture Series Unplugged', LLL aims to reach a broader audience by offering relatable stories that can further strengthen our impact on individuals, communities and society at large.”

Shyam Bhat, Psychiatrist and Chairperson, LiveLoveLaugh, said, “This series is a significant step towards making mental health conversations as normal and necessary as discussions on physical health. Sharing our stories can break down stigma and encourage more people to seek help. By featuring personal stories, we’d like to foster a sense of connection and hope, and an understanding that mental health challenges are a common part of the human experience.”

'Lecture Series Unplugged' is co-hosted by Anisha Padukone, CEO of LiveLoveLaugh, and Bhat. In the inaugural episode, actor, influencer and content-creator Danish Sait shares his mental health strategies and experiences. 

 

"Self-awareness is key. Earlier, I used to let triggers lead me to the bottom, but now I can recognize when I'm slipping and bounce back faster. Seeing a psychiatrist really healed me because the medication aided me to calm my mind,” noted Sait, during the 'Lecture Series Unplugged' episode, while advocating for individuals using a self-compassionate approach to deal with life's challenges.

Each episode of ‘Lecture Series Unplugged’ will be available on the foundation’s website and social media channels.
