Eight years after Fiyin Obayan suffered from a mental breakdown, she still remembers how terrifying it was.
“It was like I was a different person. I just kind of lost sight of reality. It’s like I kind of go in and out of it,” said the 28-year-old.
Away from home, Obayan was registered in a demanding program at the Canadian College of Performing Arts in British Columbia. She said her mental breakdown and hallucinations ensued from a lack of sleep, rest and self-care.
