In a nation where women grapple with a multitude of social, cultural, and financial challenges, the toll on their mental well-being often remains unspoken and unnoticed. In response to this pressing issue, Sony Pictures Networks India and the Royal Rajasthan Foundation have embarked on a transformative mission with their joint initiative, #KhulkeBolo. This campaign aims at prioritizing women's mental health and raising crucial awareness around this often unspoken concern.
A notable addition to this movement is the acclaimed actress Sonali Kulkarni, who has wholeheartedly embraced the cause. Through a deeply moving video, Sonali shares, "I’m so proud to be a part of this campaign. Thanks so much for having me on board. When it comes to mental health, women from all walks of life opt for the ‘silent treatment’, putting them at a higher risk of facing mental health disorders. It’s time for us to be the voice of change."
Sharing another video Sonali encourages women to step forward and voice their grievances against injustice. She emphasizes, "Don’t let silence consume you and your prospects of a better life. If you need help or know anyone who is in need of it, encourage them to #KhulKeBolo."
This campaign serves as a platform for cultivating a climate of support and unity, where individuals can unburden themselves and access the assistance they require.
The collaboration between Sony Pictures Networks India and the Royal Rajasthan Foundation holds great promise, aiming to break the stigma surrounding mental health in the context of women's lives. By sparking conversations and providing a space for open dialogues, #KhulkeBolo endeavors to dispel the notion that silence is the sole alternative.
In a society where taboos frequently obscure discussions about mental health, initiatives such as #KhulkeBolo constitute a much-needed stride forward. The involvement of influential figures like Sonali Kulkarni lends a potent voice to the cause, amplifying the message that breaking the silence is not only imperative but also a potent act of self-care and advocacy.
