Big Brother Naija Shine Ya Eye housemate, Cross has revealed that he attempted taking his own life twice before joining the show.
He made this known during a diary session with Big Brother on Friday.
Cross, who was speaking on a task by Big Brother titled “Mental health” for presentation in subsequent show, urged the Nigerian health sector to take the issue of mental health seriously as a means of alleviating suicide attempts.
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”.
