BBNaija Ex-housemate KayVee, Celebrates World Mental Health Awareness Day

Big Brother Naija Season 6 Ex-housemate, Ololade Gbolahan, better know as KayVee celebrates World Mental Health Awareness Day, today 10th October 2021 in a special way.

The 26-year-old who was withdrawn from this year’s show due to his mental health noted in a post on his Instagram page that he knows how vital mental wellbeing is.

He further said it hurts to see negative comments about his experience when he left the show. However, he was able to recover through the help of mental experts, family, friends, and his fans.

He asked that everyone is educated about Mental Health and support those living with it.

Read his caption below.

“Today is World Mental Health Awareness Day!!! As someone with a lived experience, I know how vital mental wellbeing is and how easy it is to be labelled, judged and seen through the lens of one’s mental health condition, especially as a public figure.

“It hurt to read negative comments about my experience, but I then realised that the real problem is people’s limited knowledge about mental health. Mental health is simply how a person is faring with their psychological and emotional well-being.

The Big Brother Naija show was a once in a lifetime opportunity and one I will always be grateful for. Although I intended to go far, when I noticed something wasn’t right with my emotional well-being, I did the best thing for myself by seeking help. I chose my well-being.

“World Mental Health Day is a chance to talk about the importance of mental health, recognise the signs, triggers and getting help. Never be afraid to seek help. #FreeYourMind

Recovering was easier because I had my support network around me— family, friends, KayVee FC and well-wishers who uplifted me with their words.

This World Mental Health Day, I ask that we educate ourselves on mental health conditions and support those living with it. I hope to continue to use my voice for social advocacy.

“With all my love, KayVee”.
