Sonya received criticism as a fan commented that she is the mother of two autistic children and autism is a disorder. “Autism is not a mental illness, it is a disorder”.

To this, Sonya replied, “It is one of the symptoms in schizophrenia”.
Social media users slammed her on her ‘ill-informed’ comment. However, she finally took to Instagram and gave her stance.

She announced that she will coordinate with a qualified expert on mental health soon. “To calibrate my knowledge and discuss the subject further, I will go on my social media soon with a qualified expert on mental health and wellness.”

“All those who only choose to bash or criticize others, have given me more reason to talk about such issues.”
“Amidst the debate, we should always remember to focus on the bigger picture. At the end of the day, we’re all hoping to spread more awareness about mental health and benefit the cause.”

“It is sad that as a society, we are led by a few to ignore someone’s intent and a bigger picture,” “Instead, we focus to choose on small details that result in negating the original purpose of benefiting a cause or an individual.


Mental wellness and health are subjects I have spoken about before becoming an actor. I have always encouraged others to feel comfortable when starting conversations about the same. This is a subject close to me because of my experience with Amii, who struggled with depression for 15 years.”
