According to Akothee mental illness can happen to anyone regardless of their social class.

 “WHEN YOUR MIND GOES INTO A DEEP REST ( DEPRESSION) MENTAL ILLNESS Has no shame nor class 🔐.Never underestimate the power of negative thinking. I used to judge those who commit suicide until I lost my mind and realised that, once you lose your energy to the negative environment,and you can’t breath nor sleep anymore ,there is no reason to live. Have you ever felt alone in a world full of people? I still can’t understand🙏
When nothing makes sense anymore and you craving for sleep , is nothing to joke about,”
she wrote.

The mother of five also mentions that 90% of people are battling depression and yet they don’t know how to address it adding that it took her alot of self-acceptance before she could start finding a solution to the matter.
