By BBN Staff: As we celebrate world mental health day, Shyne Barrow is supporting the Mental Health Association by donating a laptop to the first place winner of the 9th annual speech competition to be held today at the official ceremony.
Ms. Sherylee Selgado from the Mental Health Association reached out to Barrow to contribute the laptop as a prize and Barrow says he immediately agreed.
Barrow says “Mental Health is a serious issue that can impact any of us. I’ve faced many challenges in my life, devastations and crisis that would drive a normal person to have a mental break down or go insane.”
He also opened up about measures he has taken to protect his own mental health telling us “That’s one of the reasons I traveled to Jerusalem for a spiritual journey a year after I was deported to Belize, it was in order to preserve my sanity. It was more important to me to be healthy mentally than it was to be a rich and world famous Musician.”
Barrow continued, “I am often bullied, ridiculed and judged harshly for being a “deportee” I don’t know if people realize how such actions could adversely impact someone’s mental health.”
He says “I found my strength to face life through prayer and helping others, but their are those who are struggling to deal with life as we speak, having mental break downs. I thank the Mental Health Association for all they do to assist our sisters and brothers suffering from this ailment.”
Barrow ended the interview by saying “Let’s keep everyone in our prayers. Let’s be kind and gentle to each other!
You never know what someone is going through!”
