#10YearChallenge: Hazel Keech Shares A Powerful Message About Battling Depression

It's 2019, but mental health still remains a sensitive topic in India. However, with actress Deepika Padukone opening up about her battle with depression in 2015, several celebrities have initiated a much-needed dialogue about mental health in India. This has helped several fans and their loved ones confront their own struggles and seek help.

Actress Hazel Keech, who is married to cricketer Yuvraj Singh, used her social media platform to share a powerful message about her own battles with depression and bulimia.


Ever since the #10YearChallenge started trending on Instagram, several celebrities took to the platform to share pictures of themselves from 10 years ago next to a recent picture, highlighting their physical transformation.

While posting a picture of herself at the age of 22 next to her (nearly) 32-year-old self, Hazel focussed on not only her physical transformation, but also her mental and emotional one. She explained how at 22, she struggled with depression, bulimia and the constant pressure to fit in. She went on to tell us "how far I've come!", and how she's healthier, happier and no longer loses her cool over what others say about her.

This is what she wrote:

“Here is my #10yearchallenge. 22 years on the right VS almost 32 years on the left.... and how far I’ve come! I was battling depression, starving myself, had bulimia, dyed my hair dark and kept it long trying to fit in a please everyone around me but hiding all the pain with a smile and joke so no one knew. Today, i can confidently talk about what I’ve gone through, i dont care what others think of me, i finally had the courage to cut my hair, i dont try and fit in anymore and i am happier, healthier and more at peace with myself than i ever imagined i could be! Wahooo #personalcelebration thanks whoever started the 10 year challenge.”
