Preksha ka aakhri status tha - ‘sabse bura hota hai sapno ka mar jaana’. Humein mental health ke liye bhi utna hi jagrut hona hoga jitna ki hum physical health ke liye hote hai. Humare MPSD parivaar ki ek sadasya ab nahi rahi (Not everyone can understand the pain that is hidden behind a smile. Preksha’s last status was - ‘the worst thing is when dreams die’. We need to give as much importance to mental health as we give to physical health.

चेहरे की हंसी के पीछे ऎसा बहुत कुछ छुपा होता हैं जिसे हर कोई नहीं समझ सकता। प्रेक्षा का आखरी स्टेटस था-"सबसे बुरा होता हैं सपनों का मर जाना" हमें मेंटल हेल्थ के लिए उतना ही जागरूक होना होगा जितना कि हम फिजिकल हेल्थ के लिए होते हैं। हमारे "एम.पी.एस.डी." परिवार की एक सदस्य अब नहीं रही। #missyoupreksha #mpsdfamily #MPSD (Madhya Pradesh School of Drama) #theatrefamily #RIPPrekshaMehta #artist #suicide #mentalhealth #prekshamehta #preksha #prekshamehtasuicide #mentalhealthawareness #depration #anxiety #actress #tvartist #theatreartist #mpsd #theatre #mumbai #indore #rip
