Eniola Badmus has taken to social media to discuss depression and how mental health is dealt with. The Nollywood actress and businesswoman chastised people for failing to care for people suffering from depression until they died.
Several internet users have responded to her post, with the majority of them agreeing with the actress on the subject of depression.
Eniola Badmus, a popular Nollywood actress, has accused people of not caring enough about people suffering from depression while pretending to be shocked when they die.
In a Snapchat post that was reposted by Instablog, the actress recounted how she confided in a friend about her struggles with mental illness.
According to her, the said friend not only accused her of using mental illness as an excuse, but also gossiped about her and mocked her about some things she was going through at the time.
She explained that this is why people who are dealing with such issues keep it to themselves because they are frequently made to feel as if it is their fault.
Going further, she wrote:
Moral lesson is people don’t care about your life struggles until you die. They’ll rather see you dead than help you as needed.
For everyone struggling with mental health illnesses, you’re not alone and you’ll be fine. Keep getting better and don’t let the mindless and empty-headed people stop you from seeking help when you need it. Someone will be courageous enough to stand up for you.
