Big Brother Naija season five star Erica Nlewedim has issued a strong warning to her followers on social media concerning depression and why it should not be used as an insult.
Depression has become a major topic on social media for the past few months as new cases of people losing their life because of it continue to surface online.
Erica who has become once shared her past when it comes to depression has now urged fans on her timeline to take it more seriously rather than using it to insult people.
She noted that fans should be sure a person is depressed before concluding and such a person should be helped.
Stop joking about depression, stop using it as an insult to people. If you’re not sure someone is really depressed don’t say he/she is and if you are sure, help the person by pointing them in the right direction for treatment.
