Sushant Singh Rajput untimely death has created a huge controversy now, people have been speculating if he was murdered on one side while his girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty has been targeted for his apparent suicide on the other side. Now the late actor's therapist Susan Walker confirmed to a journalist that Sushant was suffering from bipolar disorder and Rhea Chakraborty was more like a mother figure for the Sushant. Here is the complete statement:  
“In light of the misinformation and conspiracy theories currently raging on the press and social media about Sushant Singh Rajput and Rhea Chakraborty, I have decided it is my duty to make a statement. In my capacity as a clinical psychologist and psychotherapist, I met Sushant and Rhea on several occasions in November and December 2019 and communicated again with Rhea in June of this year. Sushant was suffering from bipolar disorder, a severe mental illness that can be crippling for an individual during an episode. The symptoms of which can include severe anxiety, major depression and sometimes disordered thinking and paranoia. The continuing, appalling stigma around mental illness makes it very difficult for patients and their families to reach out for help and support. This has to stop. Mental illness is no different than cancer or diabetes. It can affect anyone, regardless of class, financial status and so on. In a way that cancer can. People with mental illnesses and their families need to feel safe from discrimination so that they can get their treatment and support and acceptance they need. There is no shame in having a mental illness. Should one feel ashamed of having cancer? Mental illness can be treated, it is often the shame of having such an illness that can drive people to suicide. Along with the absolute torment of being in the grip of an illness that affects the ways out minds and emotions work. Sushant was suffering terribly and Rhea was his strongest support, and first time I met them as a couple. I was very impressed by the degree concern, love and support she showed and it was very evident how close they were. Rhea took care of his appointment and gave him enough courage to attend. He depended on her somewhat like a mother figure and she completely filled that world with love, encouragement and patience. It was incredibly hard time for her as seeing someone suffer mental illness and to keep things in silence in an added trauma. The treatment Rhea has been receiving on social media is deeply shocking as I have seen her only as a deeply caring and sensible person. Sushant’s sad and untimely death must be a lesson for us all in ending what shame and stigma around mental illness.”
