Sinead O'Connor Says She is Suicidal in Facebook Video Filmed in Motel Room

Sinead O’Connor has posted a distressed video on her Facebook claiming she is suicidal and asking her family to get in touch with her.

The 50-year-old “Nothing Compares 2 U” singer shared the clip just before the weekend from a Travelodge in South Hackensack, N.J., where she has apparently been living, though NorthJersey.com reported on Monday that there was no record of her staying at the motel.

“Suddenly, all the people who are supposed to be loving you or taking care of you treat you like s–t,” Sinead says in the video. “If it was me, I’d be gone, straight away back to my mom.”

“Why are we alone?” she continues. “People who suffer from mental illness are the most vulnerable people on Earth. You’ve got to take care of us. We’re not like everybody. … I just want to make this video so you all could see what the f–k it’s like. It’s the stigma that’s killing people, not the mental f–king illnesses.”

“If you have a family member that suffers from mental illness, care for them, tenderness, love, care for them,” she adds. “Visit them in the hospital, don’t dump them in the hospital and bugger off.”

Sinead was reported missing by her son Jake Reynolds back in May 2016. She was later found safe at a hotel and brought to the hospital.

Watch Sinead‘s full video below.

We hope Sinead is able to get in touch with her family. If you or someone you love is suffering from mental illness or suicidal thoughts, call or chat with the Suicide Prevention Lifeline.
