Queer Eye’s Karamo Brown Opened About His Suicide Attempt 12 Years Ago

American Reality Television Star, Karamo Brown has revealed about his health struggles 12 years ago. He has opened up about his suicide attempt done exactly 12 years ago through a new Instagram post.

In the post, there is an emotional video which explains about his mental health struggles. He starts saying, “Hey friends, so I decided to do a quick little video about the fact that I shared that today in 2006, I did attempt to commit suicide.”

He explained about why he attempted the suicide and how his friends helped him,

“You know, I was in very dark place. I just felt like life could not get any better. Everything that was happening to me was never going to change and I tried to take my own life. And if it wasn’t for my best friends Raymond and Tre calling the ambulance and getting me off the couch, I probably would not be here today.”

He continued about his contribution in people’s mental health,

“I want you all to know that, as you see me on Queer Eye, helping people with their mental health, and you see me on my social media helping people, it’s because it’s important to me. Not just because I’m trained in this field, but because I know so many of us suffer from mental health issues.”

At last he requested all to support,

“I know so many of us suffer from mental health issues and we just don’t know where to turn and every day seems darker and darker. But I want you to know that things do get better. If you get help and you do the work daily, your life can change. I’m living proof of that and if you know someone in your life that’s going through it, reach out to them. You could be there support.”

He captioned the video, “#HeyFriends… I’m so overwhelmed and inspired by everyone’s kind words that I had to do a video. As a mental health professional I believe We all need to make our Mental Health a priority. Wether you’re sad, depressed or suicidal like I was… you can make it through. There is a better day around the corner with support. Big thank you to @rayauxais & @treatomic I love you both more thank you’ll ever know. If you need help call 1-866-488-7386 @trevorproject”
