Kenyan Rugby Player Dennis Ombechi has opened up about his mental struggles and he said that when we are in mental peril, we are unwilling to seek help despite the suffering. The player has taken a break from Rugby as he is grappling with bipolar disorder. Read more about it below.
Lots of us go through this, and not many of us are willing to seek help. So for me, it's just to tell them it's treatable. It's something you can live with and it doesn't change your quality of life whatsoever. "I had been going through the issues since my latter days in high school and my early sporting career. When I was selected to go play, I think it was against Australia and Singapore, I didn't show up for my flight. That's when the coach pulled me aside. I told him what I've been going through over a couple of years, what I'm feeling and I'm really thankful the coach really understood. He told me to go back home seek some help. I just picked the closest friend because I hadn't even talked to my family or any close person around me about it.
