Actress Deepika Padukone launched the logo of her new foundation against depression called, ‘The Live Love Laugh Foundation’ on Thursday. Not too long ago, the bollywood actress had confessed to have depression and even considered it a major health issue to be addressed at the earliest.
On August 6, 2015, Deepika launched the logo on her Twitter account. Padukone, told PTI, “The fight against depression is a cause very close to my heart and is one of the largest health issues facing the country today. Having experienced depression in the recent past, I realise how difficult it is to recognise the problem, find information and get the right kind of professional help.”

According to Deepika, the foundation’s logo is based on the idea of hope and freedom.
She said, “I was fortunate to get the kind of support and through this platform I hope others get the same kind of help. My team and I are working hard to set up the foundation and the logo launch is a small step in that direction. The flying birds in the logo signify this very essence of the foundation. The logo also has a baseline ‘Foundation Against Depression’ that represents its mission.”
A couple of months ago, Deepika had told a TV channel how her depression issues had left her “empty and directionless” after a close friend’s suicide after which she sought professional help.
