Suicide is on the rise among the youth.
That is why social media influencer Sean Andrew is starting the conversation in a bid to help anyone who is depressed and feeling like there is no hope in this life.
In a very revealing post, Sean confessed:
“I’ve been in such a situation where I felt as if it wasn’t worth living anymore and I was so alone… No one deserves to feel what I felt… We can make a difference.”
Beside Sean Andrew, there are other celebrities who have spoken about depression and attempting suicide.
TV host Grace Ekirapa revealed that when she was in Form 3, she took 35 pills and blacked out. She woke up and found herself in a bed in school thinking she had woken up in heaven.

South African rapper HHP is suspected to have taken his own life. His body was discovered in his bedroom by the housemaid. The Sowetan states that in HHP’s last few hours he had spoken of how he was “losing it”.

I’ve been down,I’ve been up its never nobody’s liking to beg or to suffer its mostly the situation. I’m nowdays the first one to understand when someone asks for help.
(Most people who know me well will tell you the kind of human being I am)
I try to make people around me better. Encourage and support them. I try to take better care of my family.
And guess what?
It’s not my power!! It’s GOD!! You donno your tomorrow only God knows. Just Work Harder,Smarter be persistent and never loose hope. Tomorrow will be better. Your condition is not permanent. If God raised me..why not You?? And if he raised you why not be a blessing?
Trust the PROCESS!! Pray and DON’T LOOSE HOPE!!”
