Singer claims to be alone and suicidal...
Sinead O'Connor

Sinead O'Connor has posted a distressing video on Facebook in which she claims to be alone and suicidal.

The singer has a history of dealing with mental health issues, but this latest video is a clear cry for help.

The Irish artist claims to be living alone, with "absolutely nobody in my life except my doctor".

"Mental illness, it’s a bit like drugs, it doesn’t give a shit who you are. And you know what’s worse? The stigma doesn’t give a shit who you are."

The 12 minute video makes for distressing viewing, with Sinead O'Connor reiterating her solitude and the depths of her illness.

At one point she says: "I hope that this video is somehow helpful. Not to me, but the fact I know that I am only one of millions and millions and millions of people who are just like me, actually, that don’t necessarily have the resources I have in my heart and my purse."

Clash has previously interviewed Sinead O'Connor and found her to be a wonderful, warm personality - we dearly hope she gets the help she needs.
