She urged people to use their social media platforms to raise positive awareness rather than make fun of sensitive matters like mental health.

“Yesterday I literally cried when I saw someone joking about mental health .These aren’t things to joke about, until it hits home, it hits so different, ask me,” wrote Kasavuli.


“Let’s use our platforms regardless of size to raise positive awareness. Lest I get quoted badly, regardless of the Size of your social platform, if you can’t spread positive awareness at least don’t use it to make fun of mental health.”
