The Duchess of Sussex interviewed the actress constancethe comedian and writer Jenny Slate and Padukone in an episode titled “The Madness Decoded”.
Markle asked her guests, “Raise your hand if you’ve ever been called insane or hysterical, or what if they’re insane, insane, insane, totally irrational? Well, if we were all in the same room and could see each other, I think it would be pretty easy to see how many of us had our hands up? Me too, by the way“.
“I feel very connected to that word, that term ‘crazy’. The way it’s presented so casually and the damage it’s doing to society and to women everywhere. About relationships with broken families, shattered reputations and ruined careers. The stigma surrounding the word also has this silent effect,” said an emotional Markle. “Women who have real mental health problems get scared. They remain silent, internalize and repress for too long.”
Wu remembered his Attempted suicide 2019 after facing backlash over a tweet expressing frustration that his show Fresh Off the Boat had been renewed. The actress then disappeared from social media for three years.
“In retrospect, it’s surreal that a few messages convinced me to end my own life, but that’s how it happened. Luckily a friend found me and took me to the emergency room,” said the Asian actress, best known for the movie Crazy Rich Asians.
“My show was being overhauled and I had a pretty sloppy moment where I was lonely and frustrated and feeling emotional after six years of suppressing a lot of feelings on this show I loved The first year I was sexually harassed by one of the producers.”Wu revealed in dialogue with Meghan. “And I think part of the reason my outburst on Twitter for the show to be renewed is because it was the accumulation of several years of oppression.”
Following her comment on Twitter, Wu revealed, “It made me feel like I didn’t deserve to be alive anymore so I tried to end my own life and luckily I had a friend who took me to him could the emergency room. That prompted me to leave social media and focus on my mental health.”
Constance, the mother of a two-year-old girl, cried as they discussed the issue. “If you weren’t crying, I would be worried,” the Duchess told her, “right? Because a lot of it is all you’ve built, internalized emotions.”
Meghan told in her interview with Oprah Winfrey that she had suicidal thoughts during her first pregnancy and that her husband’s family did not help her. Now he gave details of cHow Harry got him a professional to ease his deep agony.
“Worst case scenario, I was finally connected to someone my husband found for me. And I called this woman,” Meghan said. “She didn’t even know I was calling her. He could hear the desperate state he was in.”
Deepika spoke about her mental health issues that started in 2014.
“I woke up one morning and everything was fine. My films were a success. Personal beautiful relationships, family that has supported me. Like it came out of nowhere. I woke up and my life just felt meaningless,” Deepika said. “I didn’t want to live anymore. You just feel hopeless. You feel there is no point in living.”
Deepika shared her story live on Indian TV and was praised for her honesty and courage.
“I mean, there are two parts,” he said. “One is: I think that’s where people are struggling the most, especially in India, where mental illness is so stigmatized. One is to raise awareness. Most of us don’t even know that we are fighting mental illness. And second, if we are, to remove the stigma so people know it’s okay to seek help. Our mind is very much a part of our body, but somehow when it comes to mental illness, we start treating our mind as if it were outside of our body.”
Meghan replied: “You’re right. You know, my husband works a lot with the military community. When you suffer from post-traumatic stress, that’s what you can’t see. And if you can’t see it, just ignore it or sweep it under the rug.”
The Duchess returned to Spotify after Queen Elizabeth’s death. Three episodes of Archetypes were released before the monarch’s death, featuring guests Serena Williams, Mariah Carey and Mindy Kaling to debunk prejudice against women.
