BBNaija’s Anto issues kind-hearted counsel on mental health

• Anto feels she has come a long way with her mental health after a life-changing Seminar she attended in South Africa few years ago.

• She stipulated ways through which people have to always find or create happiness for themselves so as to stay mentally healthy.

Former Double Wahala Housemate and Big Brother Naija season 3 reality television star Anto has made out time to share some kind words with people who are steadily being trolled on social media.


Anto recounted how she has come across so many disgusting comments on social media which came from users who don’t see the need to make the social media environment healthy for others.

She reaffirmed her commitment to getting mentally healthy thanks to Mental Health Seminar she attended in South African two years ago and she has come to understand that people are becoming more aware mentally even though some others seem meaner.

The London-born influencer concluded that she personally doesn’t have answers to all problem but she makes sure she always finds happiness for herself and urged that people should endeavour to create their own happiness in any situation.

Her words read, “I’m just here to rant today… I took this picture 2 years ago at a Mental Health Seminar in South Africa. While I’m grateful that 2 years later, people are becoming more mentally aware, it also seems like people have gotten meaner! What happened to us?? Someone commits suicide, another person will tweet “Be Kind” but you will scroll down their page and see them trolling people all day long.

“Make it make sense! Someone will ask their fellow human to report a blog posting lies and humans will say they rather continue reading the gossip.

“Someone will shave their hair for whatever reason and someone else will say they look like a cancer patient. Someone will get skinny, they must have AIDS. Someone will have big stomach, they must be pregnant. Where did this bad behavior come from?

“I remember I wrote a post last year about my feelings and problems people close to me were dealing with and humans read it as I was depressed. Some even offered me money thinking I was broke. What is this type of thinking? Who is doing you people?

“I don’t have the answers but I hope everyone can find happiness. The world around us doesn’t seem to be getting better so you must create happiness for yourself.

“I would love to be a sounding board for anyone that wants to get things off their chest. My DM is open but you have to be very direct and specific. Saying “Hi” will not get you a response. I also won’t be able to answer everyone as my personal mental health is key, but I’ll continue to try and Be Kind to all.”
