The General Manager of VINTAGE 93.7 FM, Ronke Giwa-Onafuwa emphasized the importance of openness when dealing with mental health.

She added that mental health affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make healthy choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.

The former commissioner for Youth and Sports in Oyo State, Seun Fakorede who was also present at the walk explained the necessity of treating mental health with the same level of importance as physical health.

While charging people with mental health issues, the founder of Olamma Cares Foundation, Chioma Fakorede biological makeup could determine the state of ones well-being.

These include conditions such as autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, bipolar disorder, depression, and schizophrenia.
