She also revealed how the subject of mental illness is still a taboo and back then, she didn’t even understand what she was going through as nobody used to talk about it. Rubina further revealed how she came out of the phase and said, “I did not understand it back then because no one spoke about depression back then and all I could do is turn up to self-care groups, listen to audiotapes. Here it was taboo to even lookup for a psychologist and at that time, we were aware of these things. I think I started taking therapy online and started healing.”
