Not many people feel free to share about their suicidal thoughts.
Some do fear that they will be judged and not accorded the required assistance they need.
However, slowly by slowly we are seeing organizations coming out to help ease people's burdens by giving them platforms where they open up and have people ready to assist them overcome such thoughts.
Mpasho.co.ke just did a post where they asked Kenyans to open up on how they coped with suicidal thoughts.
Below are some touching feedbacks;
IamVerah: I had to pray harder. Thinking of being left behind lonely by the only person you love the most that is when my life hit reality. Rip mom. Anyway I turned to God for help so that I can get a chance and bring my mom's dream a reality no doubts or regret that dream is a reality now. #responsiblelastborn #girlpower
