In conversation with Constance Wu, Jenny Slate and Deepika Padukone, Meghan said: “Raise your hand if you’ve ever been called crazy or hysterical or what about nuts, insane, out of your mind, completely irrational?
“Okay, you get the point.
“Now, if we were all in the same room and could see each other, I think it would be pretty easy to see just how many of us have our hands up?
“By the way, me too.”
The former Suits star added during the 55-minute instalment, titled The Decoding of Crazy: “I feel pretty strongly about this word, this label, ‘crazy.’
“The way that it’s thrown around so casually and the damage it’s wrought on society and women, frankly everywhere.
“From relationships to families being shattered, reputations destroyed and careers ruined.
“The stigma surrounding the word, it also has this silencing effect.
“This effect where women experiencing real mental health issues, they get scared.
“They stay quiet, they internalize, and they repress for far too long.”
