Growing Need to Emphasise On Mental Health
Siya Kakkar’s suicide has also reignited the debate on the perks and perils of sudden social media fame on youngsters. The incidents of young stars committing suicide as they struggle with mental health issues like depression also throws light on the intense mental pressure that celebrities face.
Furthermore, many have also raised concerns over the several challenges that especially the young teens may face as they achieve immediate fame and money through the social media. While this phenomenon in itself isn’t new, the on-going health crisis has significantly aggravated the issue. The lockdown and social distancing has left many with an intense feeling of isolation which can trigger mental health problems and push people towards depression.
