Big Brother Naija ‘Shine ya eye’ housemate, Cross has revealed that he tried taking his own life twice before getting into the house.
He disclosed this with Big Brother during his diary session.
Cross, while presenting a task assigned by Big Brother titled “Mental health”, urged the Nigerian health sector to take mental health issues seriously so as to cut down the rate of suicide attempts.
The housemate blamed Nigerian parents for not being serious about their children’s mental health. He hoped to do better when he becomes a father.
He said, “I have attempted to commit suicide twice but at the end of the day, I survived it.
“I think we need physicians in this country to be serious about the issue. Our parents are not really doing enough regarding talking to children to diagnose their mental health.
“I will be a father one day, maybe one or two years to come but I just hope that I give my children the best”.
