A short time ago Urwa and her sister were trolled on their statements about depression and mental health. They said “The only cause of depression is food” on which people ridiculed them.

In a recent Instagram post, she opened up about her battle with depression and stated that food has helped her a lot in recovering. She said, she is not an expert but she will keep on helping people to save them from mental illness.

I decided to never announce it but I have suffered depression for a couple of years, the process of recovery is perpetual therefore I would NEVER ever be insensitive to its existence & causes. I find it hard to say more than this because of the extensive scrutiny on every word I’ll now utter but I will be brave. I emphasised on the “right food” because it has been an integral part of my healing process, helped me survive & recover ofcourse along with the Love & support of the people around me. The implication “ Processed Food is the “only” cause of Depression “ was not at all our intention but to bring attention to the vital role food plays. I was misunderstood despite my good intention. I have never been great at explaining my feelings in words and I do realise that therefore I keep away from interviews as much as I can . I am grateful that many of you understood what we attempted to do/say . I only hope that what we are put through post-interview doesn’t discourage the people in position from speaking about what matters to the best of their knowledge in future. I am no expert on mental health but I will always try to offer as much as I know if it can even help a single soul. Lastly, let us be humans with our imperfections, flaws & mistakes. Don’t put us on pedestals so high that we are unable to touch each other’s hearts. Let’s try be more kind & more tolerant as a society. Love, Urwa

She further added: ” I emphasized on the “right food” because it has been an integral part of my healing process, helped me survive and recover of course along with the love and support of the people around me.”

At last she addressed to be more human and requested, “I only hope that what we are put through post-interview doesn’t discourage the people in position from speaking about what matters to the best of their knowledge in future. I am no expert on mental health but I will always try to offer as much as I know if it can even help a single soul.”
