World-renowned actress and mental health advocate Deepika Padukone took to her social media today to launch ‘A Chain Of Well-being’, which is a digital guide that focuses on bringing to the forefront things that would support people in coping with overall gloom/overwhelm, given the times we all live in.
Deepika used the ‘Guides’ feature of Instagram to compile a checklist of ‘Chain of Wellbeing’. Introducing it, she wrote, “A gentle reminder to take care”.
The well-being guide has been launched by the actress in collaboration with several other social media handles, who are working towards a similar goal, to help reach out to a wide array of audiences.
The United Nations agency, UNICEF, India has also partnered with the actress for the “Chain of Wellbeing” along with several other digital influencers. Recently, UNICEF India took to their social media to share a guide on ‘MManagingTrauma and Loss’, tagging Deepika and ‘The Live Laugh Love Foundation’
In the caption, they wrote, “We’ve all been emotionally impacted by the devastating effects of #COVID-19. Children are impacted too and may feel lost and unloved. Here are some tips for parents and caregivers on how to reach out to children to let them know they are not alone.”
