New Delhi: Here is a video that needs to be watched by everyone – old or young, rich or poor! In one of its videos, the Indian comical group All India Bakchod, or AIB as famously they are known, tried to address the stigma attached to mental illnesses like depression in a jovial way.
The AIB video titled 'if people treated other illnesses like they treat depression' shows how the world would be like if a physical illness like typhoid gets treated like depression.
In the video, a number of friends were seen telling Nikhil, who has been diagnosed with typhoid, to get out and have some fun to overcome it.
Obviously, someone with typhoid won't do that, instead he/she would seek medical's help.
