Are you feeling lost, hopeless & depressed? Hear how Anupriya Kapur used Running to Fight Postpartum Depression.
One of the most common Mental Health Disorders in India is Depression. According to a 2015 World Health Organization report titled ‘Depression and Other Common Mental Disorders — Global Health Estimates’ over five crore Indians suffered from depression, a major contributor to global suicides which occurred mainly in low- and middle-income countries like India.
Battling a kind of depression which happens to every 5th pregnant woman, called postpartum depression, Anupriya Kapur is a source of motivation for all those facing depression. In this Josh Talks, Anupriya gives depression motivation. She starts her story about how stress and anxiety from depression forced her into hurting her son.
Unable to recognize the state of her mental health, the symptoms of depression, none of her friends and family were aware of the postpartum depression she was suffering from and felt that it was not possible for her to have depression. But the stress and anxiety that Anupriya went through, thoughts of anger, and being unable to control herself, made her realize that something was not right.
