One of the Big Brother Naija Season 6 housemates, Cross, has disclosed that he tried taking his own life twice before joining the reality Tv show.
The 30 years old housemate revealed this on Friday during his diary session with Big Brother.
Cross, while talking to Biggie regarding the task given to the house titled “Mental health”, however, asked the Nigerian health sector to take the issue of mental health seriously as a means of easing suicide attempts.
Also, Cross blamed Nigerian parents for not being serious about their children’s mental health.
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”.
