  • Last week, we @savedfutureinitiative held a Mental Health Dialogue @aclagosboac where we discussed extensively with Mental Health Advocates and Practitioners. 
____
One thing that was discussed during the dialogue is not to assume an individual is fine. It takes a lot to open up about going through depression or being suicidal. So double check a person that gives a "I'm fine" reply always especially when you notice frequent mood swings from the person. 
____
Also, it was mentioned that there is an increasing rate of suicide cases in Nigeria but unfortunately Nigeria is among the counties with no national suicide prevention strategy. As Mental health Advocates, we recommended having support groups and centres like @riversidesupportgroup where individuals that go through any form of mental illness can adopt these centres or groups as a safe space to open up and relate with mental health practitioners. 
______
Generally, we concluded everyone has a role to play in reducing suicide cases by paying adequate attention to people around you, being kind to everyone and being sensitive to your environment.
