Do not treat my children badly for my mistakes – Hiv postive Actress shares emotional post

Ghanaian actress and former HIV/AIDS ambassador, Joyce Dzidzor Mensah has urged everyone to be kind to her children when she’s no more.

In what appears to be her 14th anniversary of living with HIV/AIDS, Joyce said her children shouldn’t be victimized because of her status and mistakes.

Recounting how she cried many times while others were sleeping because of her status, the actress also revealed that she was admitted in a psychiatric hospital for major depression in 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2019.

She wrote;



“In September 2007 when I was diagnosed, tears never departed from me…. i consoled my mother to stop crying and told her i wasn’t bothered about my status…..but when everyone is sleeping deep at night, I’d sneak out to cry out loud….

“And when I started educating people on HIV, I encouraged others but always cried in silence after my talk….I maintained s smiling face so that most people with HIV will derive some strength from me. I have been admitted to the psychiatric hospital in Hamburg on 4 occasions. 2015, 2016, 2017, 2019 all in a psychiatric hospital for major depression. Due to my constant admission, my son Prince was taken away from me.

“But now I’m weak…Please be kind to my children when I’m no more. Do not treat them badly for my mistakes. God bless you all.”
