Wellness Wednesday - Quest talks about Suicide in his new song 'Dalitso'
Centers for diseases control and prevention describes suicide as, "death caused by injuring oneself with the intent to die. A suicide attempt is when someone harms themselves with any intent to end their life."
Between January and August this year, 208 people took their own lives in Malawi. That is an average of 26 people committing suicide each passing month.
The majority of the suicide cases are by men. In fact only 40 of the 208 cases were women.
We are loving the song Dalitso by Quest which touches this sensitive topic (suicide in Malawi) that needs to be talked about more in Malawi.
The message of the song, from the lyrics to the video conveys that, whatever your going through, remember you are a blessing.
'Ndine dalitso'. 🙌🏽
