In a bid to lend her voice to the importance of mental health, a Kenyan mum, Jacqueline Matere, has shared the heartbreaking story of how her 20-year-old son, became depressed and eventually committed suicide in their apartment.
Jacquiline was invited as a guest to speak to young people on the importance of taking care of their mental space and not to consider suicide as a way out.
The bereaved mum recounted how her younger children alerted her to come to their balcony to see the body of her son hanging. She said it was a horrific sight.
She said before he committed suicide, her son slipped into depression after he was sodomized and that he showed all the signs of a depressed person. She said she did everything within her power to help him.
