Big Brother Naija Shine Ya Eye housemate, Maria, on Friday broke down in tears as she shared the pain of her family, the brother’s mental problem.
The current Head Of House (HoH) told Biggie during her diary session that since her brother was diagnosed with Schizophrenia, things have not been the same with her family.
When Big Brother asked her about her thoughts on today’s task on Mental health”, she said that the mental health awareness campaign knocks home because it brought back memories of her brother who was diagnosed years ago.
Maria said her brother’s illness has been hard for her family since he was diagnosed with the disease.
She said, “A couple of years ago my brother was diagnosed with Schizophrenia. It’s being hard on the family because it can never be cured.
“He is on medication and constant watch in the hospital. He was a perfect human on everything he did and then he got diagnosed. Not all of us have been the same in the family since then.”
