Five days ago, the media announced the death of an American fashion designer, Kate Spade and it came as a shock to everyone, especially because she died by suicide.
Three days later, the death of Anthony Michael Bourdain, an American celebrity chef and television personality was also reported. Anthony had died by suicide.
These two deaths seem to have helped people to see the importance of providing support for people dealing with mental illnesses.
Fashion entrepreneur, Mocheddah shared her experience with clinical depression and how she was able to overcome it. She encouraged people to always check on their friends, no matter how ‘strong’ they may be.
Asides from checking on them, she says it is important to listen to them and be there for them.
