Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Mental Health Authority has advised the public to desist from getting carried away and spending more than they can afford to during the upcoming festive season.
Dr Kwasi Osei says many feel pressured and tend to “over-spend” forgetting that reality beyond the celebration awaits.
“Remember that you will now come back to reality and then if you had to incur or spend all your money, the reality dawns on you.”

“These festive occasions will come and go. Don’t let them push into stress and depression. Tell yourself that I will spend within my means. If I have, thank God, I will spend, if I don’t have, that’s okay.”
