  • Najmi shares his experience of fighting depression alongside his wife on Facebook.

PETALING JAYA, Sept 5 (Sin Chew Daily) -- Najmi Nawawi shared a post on Facebook about how he and his wife Husna were fighting together her depression and anxiety disorder.

He encouraged the public not to give up on their loved ones or friends suffering from a mental illness.

Najmi explained that his wife was diagnosed with depression and anxiety disorder some four years back. Nevertheless, he did not give up hope and was determined to fight the mental illness together with love and perseverance.

He recalled the tough moments from those four years, including a time when Husna's panic attack resulted in her losing her judgment and attempting to stab him with a key.

Najmi told The Malay Mail he was driven by a sense of responsibility to share his story.

“If everyone kept quiet and treated (depression) like a shameful disease, this problem won’t be solved.

“Do not stop supporting your loved ones. They are really in need of your help.”
