Fashion entrepreneur Mo’Cheddah has on her Instagram shared her experience of living with depression.
Highlighting stories about Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain, both of whom committed suicide in the past week, Mo’Cheddah revealed that she herself has been suffering from clinical depression for over four years.
She explained that depression is an illness of the brain. The brain gets ill just as all organs do, she said.
She encouraged people suffering from depression to care for themselves, for them to seek help.
It is a disorder, not a decision, she shared.
We are sending love and light to everyone going through this. Mo’Cheddah has also shared hospitals you can visit across the country.
