  1. Sad, so sad. We need to take depression serious. Pm told us at the beginning of his tenure in 2014 that mental health is one of the areas he is going to address. I took him serious because of the past experience with his mother( not saying this to cast any negative on the lady). To date no improvement has been done to the lone institution or health care facility. No policy to improve on our health care even after cases of depression, abuse increased after Covid 19 / shut downs. Today we are no better off in terms of showing tangible proof of taking this illness serious. We had a lady innocently murdered by a young young lady that could also me mentally sick and if as a nation we had taken mental health serious this probably could have been avoided.
    We often arrest and send people to prison that are mentally ill. This is an issue that we need to also put on the table/ discussion during the up coming election campaign.
