I was depressed and lost my memory in SHS because of a broken home - Naana Agyemang

CEO of Lex Entertainment Ltd, Naana Lexis Opoku-Agyemang, has revealed that her parents’ separation was the cause of her medical condition. 


Speaking on Daily Hustle, Naana mentioned that her experience in SHS turned her into a mental health advocate. According to Naana, her father never gave her the love and attention a child needs.


“I never saw my parents together until I heard that they had divorced. It wasn’t pleasant. It made me end up somewhere I didn’t want to be. That is what made me a mental health advocate.


I was diagnosed with malaria and typhoid fever during my final year. So I got a high fever because I was thinking about what to do next,” Naana said on SVTV Africa.


Miss Opoku-Agyemang added that she felt lonely and discouraged while in high school, causing her breakdown. 


“My mother told me she won’t have time to visit me, so I never expected it. I couldn’t call my father, and I was usually the one running errands for parents who came to visit their wards. I was depressed.”


Moreover, the life coach revealed that she sought medical care at the Accra Psychiatric Hospital as her condition worsened. However, she the stigma 


“I lost my memory before visiting the hospital, and I experienced a lot of stigma from school and even the church. I decided to use that experience to educate people about it. It’s a mental condition, and it can happen to anyone, she told DJ Nyaami.
