Having avoided talking about how she went through depression for sometime, Vlogger Anabel Giwa Amu, says it’s time for her to discuss the issue, especially to help someone who may be going through the same.
Speaking about how depression is perceived in Nigeria, she said;
“Even till now, I laugh about it because Nigerians are still under the impression that there’s no such thing as having mental health issues or anything like that. But guys, I had anxiety and depression.
And this is not self-diagnosed. I eventually went to the clinic to do a test and they asked me a lot of different questions and I found out that I had moderate anxiety depression and I still didn’t do anything about it. I still didn’t tell anybody. I never went back for any form of treatment or coaching.”
