Ghana-based Gambian actress and model, Princess Shyngle has opened about her mental health challenges in a recent interview.
She disclosed that she suffers from depression and occasionally has thoughts of ending her life.
According to the model, the most common trigger of her condition is when she experiences disappointment in whatever form they emerge.
In an interview with Graphic Showbiz, Princess Shyngle said whenever she has her mind set on anything and it does not work out, she feels disappointed and then the thoughts of killing herself emerge.
Princess Shyngle revealed that she began suffering from depression about 18 years ago, when her father was almost killed in a fire accident.
The actress/model noted that the thought of losing her father was so painful that she would have sought no other option than to go join him, had he not survived.
However, Princess Shyngle said she is currently undergoing treatment for her condition, which has helped her a lot.
She said the occasional sessions with her doctor help to push the those deadly thoughts from her mind.
