The “Kaththi” actress stressed the point about seeking help from psychiatrists and said that it should be normalised. “Like how we are going to see a doctor if we get hurt physically, we also should seek the help from doctors if we have a broken heart” the actress said. “I think it’s time for us to normalize our lows and asking for help” She added.
“When we are going through a low, friends and family should not just say “calm down, it’s going to be okay” because it’s not. It’s time for friends and family to say “if you need help, ask for help” because people are there to help” Samantha said through her speech.
