After HHP’s devastating death and this week’s shocking tweets from rapper Gigi Lamayne where she hints that she tried to commit suicide before being checked into hospital, other stars have also started opening up about their battles with depression and anxiety. Pop star Lady Zamar is one of those major celebs in the country who has had enough of the taboo around mental health – and has taken to Twitter to vent.

In her heart-breaking posts, the star revealed that she believes that men and women should be having more conversations around mental health and even opened up around her own battles which saw her attempt suicide when she was just 16 years old.

We’re so glad personalities like Lady Zamar are speaking out about depression, anxiety and other mental illnesses. We’ve seen what the results of keeping emotional distress does to people and the only way we as a society can overcome the stigma attached to mental illness is to speak out, share your story and remind people that they are not alone.

We’re so proud of Lady Zamar for sharing her story.
